Ingredients
  • Tomato Chutney:
  • 5 cups water
  • 4 cups chopped Roma tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt
  • Basmati Rice:
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • Salt
  • Chicken Tagine:
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 zucchini, cut into julienne strips
  • 1 leek, cut into julienne strips
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon black caraway seeds, for garnish
Directions
  • For the chutney, place all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil for about 10 minutes. Then reduce heat and simmer until the water has completely evaporated and the sauce has thickened into a jam-like consistency. Reserve.

  • For the rice, saute the onion in olive oil for about 5 minutes. Add the rice, pepper, and turmeric and stir to combine. Add the broth and salt, and bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to low, cover tightly, and cook for 20 to 25 minutes, or until rice is al dente.

  • For the chicken, saute the onion in olive oil until translucent. Add chicken strips and saute until almost golden on all sides. Add ginger, cinnamon, and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the zucchini and leeks and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

  • Serve the chicken and vegetables over the rice. Top with a dollop of chutney and garnish with black caraway seeds.
