Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Rub chicken parts lightly with salt and pepper. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a large, deep skillet, Dutch oven or other oven-proof pot. Add chicken pieces and cook over medium-high heat, turning frequently, until browned, about 5 minutes. Remove pieces to a plate.
  3. Add remaining olive oil, onion and cinnamon to cooking pot. Sauté 2 to 3 minutes, then add paprika, cumin, ginger, garlic and coriander. Sauté 5 minutes. Add mustard greens and preserved lemon and cook until greens wilt, about 6 minutes.
  4. Pour in 1 cup stock. Return chicken to pot and add cardamom pods, ras el hanout (or Indian curry powder) and saffron. Pour in more stock until chicken is mostly covered, up to 1 cup. Add a pinch of salt to taste. Bring mixture to a simmer over medium heat and cook 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to preheated oven and cook 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until liquid has reduced and meat is falling off the bones. Let rest 10 minutes. Discard cinnamon stick and cardamom pods before serving over rice.
