Recipe Description:

The oldest recipes in the world were found in Iraq, etched on ancient tablets that detail the festival food prepared in long-ruined temples. Modern Iraqi cuisine still has traces of that ancient legacy, as well as bearing the influence of Turkey, Iran and the Middle East, even as far as India. This saffron-raisin sauce, infused with ground nuts and spices, is a powerful sensory experience typical of the region’s cooking; it might even be considered a rather humble dish! The combination could be cooked in one pot, as a casserole, but we love the interplay between the buttery, full-on sauce and the separate roast chicken and potatoes.
