Alibaba Chicken Stew

I’m trying to stay on track with healthy eating. It is easier to do if I cook every meal. Thankfully Russ is a rally good sport about eating whatever concoction I dream up. Tonight I was making up a dish on the fly with what I had on hand from the farmers market. I decided to go with a Lebanese/middle eastern spice profile and it turned out to be very satisfying. I had mine with some hummus as my garnish and Russ had his over rice with Harissa. Both were two thumbs up.

Five boneless skinless chicken thighs- cur into bite sized pieces

2 large sweet onions chopped

4 garlic cloves

3 red tomatoes chopped

2 zucchini chopped

2T. Ground Cumin

2T. Ground Coriander

Sprinkle of cinnamon

1t. Smoked paprika

Sprinkle of red pepper flakes

Salt and pepper

10 fresh mint and 10 fresh basil leaves minced

Heat a large non-stick frypan to hot. Sprinkle half the cumin, coriander and some salt and pepper on the chicken and put it In The hot pan. Don’t stir it for four minutes. Then add the onions and stir everything up. Add all the other spices.

Cook for two minutes, tastier again and add the garlic and tomatoes. Salt and pepper the whole thing again. Cook for two minutes and then add the zucchini. Add A little more salt and pepper and continuing cooking. Stir every minute for three minutes until done. Sprinkle mint and basil on the whole thing. Enjoy!
