 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Oil
  • 1 Fryer chicken; skinned and
  • -quartered
  • 1 c Thinly sliced onions
  • 2 tb Ground coriander
  • 2 ts Ground cardamom
  • 1 ts Ground black pepper
  • 1/4 c Blanched almonds; sliced
  • 1 1/2 c Plain lowfat yogurt OR

  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 c Sliced toasted almonds; for
  • -garnish


Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

Heat 1 TB of the oil in a nonstick saute pan over medium heat. Add the
chicken pieces and cook, turning often, for 5 minutes until the chicken
turns opaque. Remove and place the chicken pieces in an ovenproof casserole
dish or Dutch oven.

Add the remaining old and onions to the saute pan. Cook until onions are
wilted, about 3 minutes. Add the cardamom, coriander, black pepper and
blanced almonds. Cook until the nuts are pale gold, about 2 minutes.

Transfer the onion/spice mixture to a food processor or blender. Add the
yogurt and puree until smooth. If you use unblanched almonds, you don't
need to get perfectly smooth sauce. Season the sauce with salt/pepper as
needed and pour over the chicken pieces. Bake in the middle of the oven for
50 minutes, or until the chicken is tender.

Garnish with toasted almonds and serve with the sauce.
