Here's a recipe from "In a Persian Kitchen" by Maideh Mazda. I haven't
tried this recipe before, but all the recipes I've tried from this book
have been great. Wash and prepare chicken for frying. Saute the chicken in
the shortening along with the poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper. Set
aside. Saute onion in butter until golden brown. Add tomato sauce and
simmer for a few minutes. Add the walnuts. Simmer over med. heat for 5
minutes. Stir constantly and be careful not to burn walnuts. Add water and
remaining seasonings, lemon juice and pomegranite juice. Cover and cook the
sauce on low heat for about 35 minutes. Arrange chicken in sauce. Cover and
simmer for 20-25 minutes. Serve with steamed rice. Now that I've typed it
out, it sound good! I'll have to try it soon! Sharon SUE HALEY (UJEB63A)
