Chicken and New Potatoes
1&1/4 lbs of chicken breast cut up (I used Tenders for simplicity)
1 clove of garlic chopped fine
1/2 tsp ground ginger (or fresh grated if you have it)
1 tsp ground corriander
1 medium onion chopped
3 TBSP vegetable oil
1 cup of hot water
1&1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp cumin
2 cans of new potatoes (cut into quarters if whole)
black pepper to taste
Put chicken into glass bowl or dish, rub all over with garlic, coriander, and ginger. Set aside for an hour or two to marinate. Heat 2TBSP of vegetable oil in a large frying pan and saute chopped onions for 5 minutes or until softened. Add chicken and fry until brown. Add water and salt to pan, bring to a boil, cover and simmer until chicken is tender. Meanwhile, in another frying pan, heat 1 TBSP of oil. Add new potatoes to this pan to fry. Turn the potatoes occasionally so they don't stick the pan. During the last few minutes of cooking, sprinkle cumin and black pepper on the potatoes and stir to coat evenly. Combine the potatoes and the chicken mixture and serve.
