Rosh Hashanah Chicken and Quince

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!"


  • Prep Time : 14 min
  • Cook Time : 1 hour
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 14 min


4-6 Servings


  • 4 quince
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless, chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baharat or allspice if you cannot find it
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 1/4 cups orange juice
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro chopped


Sprinkle quince with 1/2 tsp cinnamon until well coated
In a large deep skillet place quince and sugar cook in medium low for 5 minutes, add lemon juice and keep cooking for another 10 minutes until quince is caramelized, but still firm.
Put caramelized quince on a plate including all its liquid.
Season chicken on both sides with salt baharat and 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Using the same skillet, heat oil sear chicken on both sides about 5 minutes each side
Add quince with its juices, add orange juice and raisins.
Bring to a boil and simmer covered for 30-40 minutes until sauce concentrates.
Right before serving add fresh cilantro and almonds.


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?�
