Braising in a highly spiced aromatic liquid yields an exceptionally flavourful and tender result. This East African dish is enjoyable when served with a bowl of plain low-fat yogurt and flatbreads or couscous.

Ingredients

1 teaspoon curry powder

1/2 teaspoon crushed cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon crushed cardamom

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

2 large garlic cloves, thinly cut

1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth

1/2 cup dry white wine

3 tablespoons sliced pitted dates

3 tablespoons golden raisins

2 chicken breast halves, skinned

2 chicken thighs, skinned

2 chicken drumsticks, skinned

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 cups vertically sliced onion

1 tablespoon sliced skinned fresh ginger

Method

Sprinkle chicken with salt and black pepper. Heat oil in an oven over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove the chicken from pan.

Add the onion to pan; reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the ginger and next 5 ingredients (ginger through garlic); cook for 1 minute. Stir in chicken, broth, and the remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour.
