Tender chicken in a rich, spicy tomato sauce.
- 4-6 chicken drumsticks
- 1 Lemon
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 can chopped tomatoes
- 2 tsp ground dried ginger
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp chili flakes
- 3 tbsp honey
- 3 tbsp sesame seeds
- 2 tbsp almonds chopped
- flatbread or baguette
With a sharp knife make 2-3 incisions into every chicken drumstick. In a small glas mix the juice of one lemon, a tbsp of olive oil and some salt and pepper. Rub the mixture into the chicken.
Heat a big skillet over medium to high heat. Add the chicken drumsticks and fry them until they are golden brown all around.
Add the chopped onions and stir for a few minutes.
Add the tomato sauce, the ginger, the cinnamon and the chili flakes. Stir until everything is combined. Cover the pan with a lid, turn down the heat and let it simmer for 20-25 min.
In a small pan roast the sesame seeds and the almonds until they are starting to brown. Set aside.
When the chicken is done, add the honey to the sauce and salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle the sesame-almond-mixture over the chicken when you serve it. Yum.
