Be a kid or a teenage or an adult or an oldie, chicken lovers trend all over the world at all times! One meat that is a favourite of all beyond belief! When cooked, it can be presented in many guises. Sauté it, fry it, toss it, bake it, steam it – eat it the way you want to. Whatever its form may be upon being cooked, its flavour may change but its flesh remains high in protein, low in fat and can be digested easily.
Heat butter and extra virgin olive oil in a non stick pan and add onions. Crush garlic and add and saute for 1 minute. Add chicken and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add salt and mix. Roughly chop tomatoes and puree in a mixer.
When chicken turns a light brown, add cinnamon powder, freshly crushed black peppercorns and mix. Add pureed tomatoes and mix. Grind half the pomegranate pearls and add to the chicken. Rinse the mixer jar with a little water and add to the pan.
Add ¼ cup walnuts and mix. Adjust salt and crushed peppercorns and cook till the chicken is done. Add the juice of 1 lemon and mix well. Transfer into a serving bowl, garnish with remaining pomegranate pearls and a few roasted walnuts and serve hot.
