We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to do a guest post for Joy of Kosher. So much so, that we immediately started thinking of different dishes we could create. We wanted something unique,  something that would represent our cooking and also that would appeal to the Joy of Kosher readers. At the same time, we wanted to step out of “our” box a little bit. As some of you may know, most of the recipes you’ll find in our blog are vegan and vegetarian. And that is mainly how we cook at home… but the Holidays are always a bit more special. So we wanted to incorporate some meat this time and get creative with it.

That’s when the idea of chicken and quince came to mind.

Why quince you may ask?  It is not a very common fruit… and it’s kind of a  strange combination, isn’t is? Well, the idea came to us while looking at the pictures we took during our trip back home to Barcelona last summer.

One of our favorite things about going back home (besides seeing our parents, visiting friends, enjoying great weather, eating great food and shopping) is going to our father’s garden.  He has an extensive  selection of fruits and vegetables that we just love picking fresh and creating dishes with them along with our mom. Last year our father had some beautiful trees full of quince, so we though that chicken and quince would be perfect for the holidays. Since people are always looking for new chicken recipes and quince is a new fruit, we decided to put them together!  The result was really fantastic: a sweet and flavorful chicken with caramelized quince that makes you wonder…” Hmmm…  I don’t know exactly what it is, but I like it!”


Would you like to learn other ways to use quince? Stay tuned!  Our quince paste recipe will be coming soon to our blog http://mayihavethatrecipe.com

About May I have that recipe


Close your eyes for a second. Imagine a gigantic blender in front of you. Add a piece of Spain, a chunk of Lebanon, a splash of Israel and a hint of America. Turn it on. Blend until smooth and voila! What do you get? Identity crisis? Not quite… (ok, maybe a little bit). But mostly, you get us. Confused? Keep reading and you’ll understand.

We were born and raised in Barcelona, Spain and now live in a small town on the East Coast of the United States ( I know what you're thinking.... why??? we will go ahead and say it, we blame our husbansd for that one). �Our parents are Lebanese - Syrian Jews . Our mom cooked the best, most flavorful, comforting home cooked meals you could ever imagine. Moving away from that, now that was a challenge.

So we decided to bring a piece of it here with us and shareit with everyone. �After all, what better way to make new friends and share our culture that through food. �Which brings us to how we started our blog May I Have That Recipe? �from our passion for food, our love for people and our need to share both.�

The ingredients, the flavors and the stories behind our recipes might change, but we can guarantee one thing: like our friends, you won't leave our home without asking: May I Have That Recipe?�

  1. People have been asking what they can use as a substitute for almonds. Pomegranate seeds would go great with this dish. Enjoy!

  2. quince is under rated and we should use it more often. I have cooked it with chicken and love it. This recipe looks wonderful.

  3. I have never tried. maybe that will be my new fruit :)

  4. This sounds so interesting! It would work great as my new fruit for the holiday.
