Chicken With Prunes

Chicken with prunes, or Poyo con Prunes as it’s called in Ladino, the language of the Sephardic Jews of Thessaloniki, is one of the most delicious traditional Sephardic recipes. Dried fruits and meat are a common combination in Sephardic and Northern Greek cooking. I paired this chicken recipe with an Agiorghitiko red wine from Nemea. This is a recipe from season 4 of My Greek Table on Public Television.

1 3-4 lb. chicken cut into serving pieces
Extra virgin Greek olive oil
2 medium onions
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp cayenne pepper
½ tsp ground cinnamon
20 coriander seeds
25 dried prunes
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1 cup dry red wine
Stock made with back, neck, and giblets of chicken
Basic tomato puree made with 3 large tomatoes
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1 cinnamon stick
⅓ cup parsley finely chopped (optional)
