Chicken in carrot and plum sauce

This recipe is a traditional Persian dish. The combination of sourly sweet plums in a hearty sauce is excellent. The longer cooking time makes the chicken incredibly tender and the carrots remain firm to the bite.

Level of difficulty: easy

Working time: approx. 50 minutes

Ingredients for 2 people:

200 g carrots

200 g chicken breast

200 g dried plums (best from a Turkish supermarket)

1 onion

1 pinch salt

1 pinch of pepper

0,5 g saffron threads

5 tbsp olive oil


Cut the onion into small pieces and sauté briefly in the pan with the olive oil. Add the chicken and carrots and sauté. Then add approx. 2 cups of water and the plums, saffron threads, pepper and salt and mix well. Simmer at low heat for about 45 minutes.

Our tip: Saffron rice or mashed potatoes are excellent as a side dish.
