Ossetian Chicken with Sour Cream
In this recipe from Ossetia we show how to make chicken with sour cream and herbs. This dish is usually made in a large clay pot, using a whole young chicken. We used a clay pot but the dish can also be made in a pan or in individual small clay pots. We used chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken.
Ingredients (serves 6): 1 kilo of chicken breasts, 500 grams of potatoes, 3 medium sized onions, 300 grams of sour cream, 2 cloves of garlic, 25 grams of fresh green coriander, 20 grams of fresh parsley, 1 level tsp of black pepper, 1 level tsp of summer savory and salt (amount dependent upon personal preference).
Preparation: Wash and cut the chicken into small to medium sized chunks and add to a large, deep clay pot.
Cut the potatoes into small to medium chunks. Cut the onions into medium chunks. Add the potatoes, onions and 1 liter of water to the chicken.
Cook on a low-medium temperature for 30 minutes.
Cut the fresh green coriander and crush together with 2 cloves of garlic and salt.
Remove the clay pot from the heat. Add 300 grams of sour cream, 1 level tsp of black pepper, and salt. Stir. Cook for a further 5 minutes on a medium heat.
Cut the fresh parsley. Remove the pot from the heat. Add the parsley, together with 1 level tsp of summer savory and the crushed garlic and coriander to the pot. Stir and then serve.
Serving: Serve hot.
We garnished ours with basil.
