Chicken Gormeh (Afghan Slow-Cooked Chicken over Basmati Rice)
This delicious chicken dish is brimming with flavor. Ghormeh is derived from Turkic kavurmak, translating to braised or stewed. In Chef Zainab’s Chicken Ghormeh, she stews chicken thighs as a way to draw out and maximize their flavor. She adds savory and tangy tomatoes as a base, as well as seasons with fresh onions, garlic, coriander, and jalapeno. The aromatics give the dish a deep and rounded flavor, while the coriander and jalapeno add warmth. Once the chicken is tender and infused with all these fantastic flavors, Zainab pairs the chicken ghormeh with fluffy basmati rice. This chicken ghormeh is both filling and warming, and best enjoyed on a crisp sunny day.
