Chicken Fesenjan- A Persian Pomegranate and Walnut Chicken Stew

Chicken Fesenjan — Persian Pomegranate & Walnut Chicken Stew

Amy No Comments

Fes­en-WHAT?!?! Unfor­tu­nate­ly for the world of food­ies, so many peo­ple have nev­er heard of Chick­en Fes­en­jan, or had the lux­u­ry of tast­ing this dish.

Vegas is a cul­tur­al melt­ing pot, and lucky for me, I got to enjoy many inter­na­tion­al fla­vors before ever leav­ing home.

Before we know it, those hearty root veg­gies will be mak­ing their exit to pave the way for fresh Spring greens, like aspara­gus, arti­chokes and peas, and vibrant fruits like apri­cots, and my per­son­al favorite, rhubarb!
