July 2, 2011 by Dr. Lamya Almas
Yemeni restaurants around the world are known for their Haneed–chicken and meat. Usually this is made in a tanoor [clay oven filled with hot coals], but you can make it at home with the help of a pressure cooker and an oven.
You will need:
1) one whole chicken, cut into four equal pieces. Skin removed.
2) 1/2 cup of olive oil
3) 1 tblsp of cumin
4) 1tblsp of coriander
5) 1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon
6) 1/4 tsp of fresh ground pepper
7) 1/2 tsp of tumeric
8 ) 1/4 tsp of ground cardamon
9) salt to taste
10) 3 cloves of garlic, minced.
In a pressure cooker, on medium heat, add the chicken pieces, garlic, and all the spices. Mix well with spoon. Add a cup of water, and close pressure cooker and leave on medium low heat for 45 min to 1 hour. Remove chicken, and place in an oven dish [covered with foil] and place under the broiler until well browned from the top. Serve with rice, or fries.
