Chicken Thighs in Rhubarb Sauce
Season chicken pieces with salt.Advertisement
Heat olive oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Cook chicken until browned on all sides, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Add onions to the skillet; cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Season with turmeric, black pepper, and red pepper flakes and cook for 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook until lightly reduced, about 5 minutes. Add rhubarb, honey, lime juice, and saffron; mix well. Return chicken to the skillet.
Pour in chicken broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until chicken is very tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Season with salt.
Adjust seasoning to your personal taste - add more honey, if you like it sweeter, use curry powder instead of saffron and turmeric, or add extra chili powder for spice.
