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 are two Sephardic sisters, Vicky and Ruth, returning to our roots to harvest our Mediterranean background. Inspired by the foods of our childhood, our cooking is bold and full of flavor.

Many of our recipes are infused with items you might not have considered previously: …. lemon (always fresh!), sumac, zaatar, pomegranate molasses, orange blossom and rose water, that will enhance your cooking, allow you to experience new flavors, and get a taste of the Mediterranean without ever leaving your kitchen.

Now, thanks to our new blog,http://mayihavethatrecipe.com/, you’ll gain a more expanded cooking repertoire and serve a wider palette of bold flavors bursting with flavor and color.

Our real specialty is performing recipe makeovers; we start with a recipe that appeals to us, and then we change it to make it kosher, vegetarian, or vegan. Then we change it to make it healthier. We continue developing the recipe until it is perfect and then post it for you to use. We will often transform and adapt a recipe utilizing innovative products such as chia seeds, almond milk, coconut oil, almond flour.

As we continue to build their subscriber base, you can subscribe to our blog for free and receive e-mail notifications each time a recipe is posted. We hope you will visit our site soon May I Have That Recipe;http://mayihavethatrecipe.com/

  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 :)
