Instructions

  • In a large cast iron or ceramic pot, heat half of the olive oil on medium-high heat and sauté chicken pieces on all sides until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a separate dish and set aside.
  • Wipe up the pan with paper towel, then heat the remaining oil. Once hot, add the onions and cook on medium heat until soft and translucent.
  • Add ground cinnamon, saffron, turmeric, ginger, chili pepper, cinnamon stick, garlic, salt, Sarawak white pepper, and stir well. Cook for a couple of minutes to release all the flavors, stirring often.
  • Place the chicken pieces back into the pan, then add honey, apricots and dates.
  • Pour in the stock, making sure apricots and dates are soaking. Cover with a lid and let simmer on medium-low heat for about 35 to 45 minutes, stirring regularly and adding more water or stock as needed.
  • Just before serving, add toasted slivered almonds, sesame seeds, and serve over plain couscous.
