Recipe: Turkish Chicken with Walnut Sauce

Title: Turkish Chicken with Walnut Sauce
Categories: Poultry, Sauces, Turkish
Yield: 6 servings

1 3-1/2 to 4 lb chicken

----------------------------POACHING FLAVOURINGS----------------------------
2 Onions; sliced, unpeeled A few peppercorns
1 Bouquet garni Coriander seeds
1/2 Lemon (juice only)

--------------------------------WALNUT SAUCE--------------------------------
6 oz Walnut kernels 1 bn Fresh coriander
1 1/2 oz Crustless bread 2 tb Walnut oil
1 1/2 ts Well-toasted corinader seeds 1 tb Paprika

Put the bird into a pan, add the flavourings and enough hot (not boiling)
water to cover the thighs. Poach for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours until tender.
Let the bird cool in the pan, then skin and bone it. Wrap the flesh to
keep it succulent. Return the chicken skin and bones to the pan and simmer
for 2 hours more. Strain and de-grease. Reduce to 3/4 pints and cool.

Scald or lightly toast the nuts and rub off the papery thin skins. Then,
using a spice or coffee mill, reduce the nuts and coriander seeds to a fine
powder. Process in small batches, adding the bread to minumise stickiness.
Transfer the aromatic powder to a bowl and gradually blend in as much of
the stock as is needed to make a creamy-textured masking sauce ~ you
probably won't need it at all.

Cut the meat into small strips. Put them into a pretty dish, adding some
of the sauce and a little fresh chopped coriander between layers. Spoon
the rest of the sauce over the top to cover the meat completely. Just
before serving, stir ther walnut oil into the paprika. Drizzle the mixture
over the dish in a decorative red pattern and place a little bouquet of
fresh coriander in the centre. Serve with rice and a green salad.
