 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 lb Chicken legs, skinless; cut
  • -up and defatted
  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 2 md Onions; peel thinly slice
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 ts Ground saffron; dissolved in
  • 2 tb Hot water
  • 1/4 ts Turmeric
  • 3 c Chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 c Chopped fresh mint
  • 5 tb Fresh lime juice
  • 1 lb Fresh artichoke hearts


STEP #1 - Heat a non-stick saute pan and lightly brown chicken. Add 1
tablespoon oil and the onion. Fry over medium heat, stirring occasionally,
for 20 minutes or until onion becomes translucent. Add salt, pepper,
saffron water, and turmeric. Pour in 1 1/2 cups water. Cover and simmer
over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

STEP #2 - In a non-stick skillet, fry the parsley and mint in 1 tablespoon
oil over medium heat for 10 minutes and add to the chicken.

STEP #3 - Add lime juice and the artichoke hearts to the chicken. Cover and
simmer for 40 to 55 minutes over low heat.

STEP #4 - Check to see if the artichoke hearts are tender. Taste the
khoresh and adjust seasoning. Transfer it to a deep casserole. Cover and
place in a warm oven until ready to serve.

STEP #5 - Serve hot from the same dish with steamed basmati; cook it very
slowly with a very tight fitting lid. Add salt to water to help rice
withstand a longer cooking time.

Nush-e jan! (Enjoy this food of life.)

VARIATIONS: For *ab ghureh* substitute 3/4 cup unripe grape juice for the
lime juice. Frozen (2 9-oz pkgs) or bottled artichokes may be substituted.
Drain well. If pre-cooked, adjust cooking time, adding artichoke hearts
when appropriate to step 3. Chicken can be replaced with 1 pound lean stew
meat such as lamb, veal or beef, cut into 1 inch cubes. In step 1, increase
water to 2-1/2 cups; and simmer for 55 minutes instead of 30 minutes.
