Several years ago, I was given this recipe when I had a cold.
Being from a Jewish back ground I wanted a different Jewish Penicillin recipe. One that would spice it up, yet be an easy recipe for my family to follow. One without a lot of work.
It's delicious.

How to Make Sephardic Aromatic Chicken


  1. Bring the water to a boil in a large pan over moderate heat. Add the chicken and cook, covered for 20 minutes. Add all the other ingredients and cook over low heat for 45 minutes. Keep the pan covered to retain the aroma of the seasons.
    Serve hot with or without the chicken. Serves 6.
  2. I like to add 1/2 turmeric.
