CHAKHOKHBILI

In this recipe we will show how to make a traditional Georgian dish called Chakhokhbili (Georgian: ჩახოხბილი). The name comes from the Georgian word “khokhobi” which means “pheasant,” but nowadays it is most usually made with chicken. Traditionally, a whole chicken, cut into pieces with the skin left on, is used but we made ours with chicken breasts.

Chakhokhbili

Ingredients: 1 kilo of chicken breasts, 3 large white onions, 3 large juicy tomatoes, salt (amount depenednet upon personal preference), 20 grams of fresh green coriander, 20 grams of fresh parsley, 1 hot green pepper, 50 ml of white wine vinegar, 6 tbs of oil, 4-5 bay leaves, 4 cloves of garlic and 1 tbs of red pepper.

Preparation: Cut the chicken and add to a pan with the bay leaves. Add 50 ml of white wine vinegar and 50 ml of water and boil until the vinegar and water have disappeared (stirring occasionally).
