  • 4 Chicken legs and thighs
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 4 large carrots, cut into 2” pieces
  • 1 large onion, cut into quarters
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 TBSP fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 TBSP minced fresh turmeric or 1 TBSP powdered turmeric
  • 2 TBSP cider vinegar
  • 2 cups organic low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 cup Sunsweet® Amaz!n™ Prunes
  • ½ cup pistachios
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Fresh mint to garnish


In a large Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium high heat.
Season the chicken thoroughly with salt and pepper and then sear on all sides until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the chicken and set aside on a plate. Add carrots, onions, garlic, ginger and turmeric and sauté for 3-5 minutes. Deglaze with cider vinegar, reduce heat to medium low. Return chicken to the pot and add the chicken stock, Sunsweet Amaz!n Prunes and season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and reads 155 F at the joint on an instant read thermometer. Sprinkle with pistachios, cayenne pepper and torn mint. Serve immediately.
