Seven-Species Harvest Chicken

Use all the seven species of Israel in this fabulous chicken dish. The combination of fruits and nuts and cinnamon and spices will delight all your senses.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 1 hour
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 15 min


8-10 Servings


  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 2 chickens, cut into eighths
  • 1/2 cup (65 g) flour
  • 1 cup dried whole figs
  • 1 cup (240 g) dried whole dates
  • 1 cup (240 mL) white wine
  • 1 cup (240 mL) pomegranate juice
  • 1 cup (200 g) barley
  • 2 cups (475 mL) chicken stock

Sauté onions in olive oil in a large pot. Add cinnamon and ginger. Toss chicken in a bowl with flour, then add chicken to pot and brown on all sides. (This may need to be done in shifts, according to the size of your pot.) Return all chicken pieces to the pot and add remaining ingredients. Cook 45–60 minutes or until chicken has cooked through. Serve with couscous.

    Can I make this recipe with chicken cutlets (boneless) and if so, can I bake it? or should I just follow the same directions?
