Middle Eastern Chicken and Vegetables

  • Author: Elika


3 chicken thighs 

1 medium red onion 

2 garlic cloves

1 tablespoon of olive oil

2 tablespoon of middle eastern spices – sumac & zatar

1 tin of plum tomatoes

1 bay leaf

1 head of broccoli 

1 cup of water or stock

salt and pepper final seasoning



Don’t go light on the marinate, the more flavoursome the better

Keep the water when you steam vegetables in the fridge and you will have your own stock to hand, even better add to ice cube trays so you can have them portioned off

I always keep spinach, fresh herbs in the freezer to add to dishes like this from frozen
