Here's another simple, easy to make chicken dish from Yemen.Sorry I don't have a picture for it as I was in a hurry to prepare it because my family was hungry and they couldn't wait but I'll try to post one in the future.You can also try this dish without the zhoug but if you're brave enough to try the recipe for it is in the Condiments section.Enjoy!

1 large onion, chopped finely
3 large garlic cloves, finely sliced
3 Tbsp. butter
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground black pepper
2 tsp. turmeric
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. zhoug
6 lbs. chicken breast without skin, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 c seedless raisins or black currants

  1. In a large pan, add the butter, onions, and garlic and saute on medium -high heat until they are slightly browned.Bring down the heat a little.Add the salt, pepper, turmeric, cumin, and zhoug and continue sauteing.
  2. Add the chicken pieces and saute until it is cooked (15-20 minutes).
