Medium Brush Stroke


Brown Rice

Step 1

Cut the onions and sauté in a pan on low heat until they become soft, have a bright pink color to them, and have released all their water. Keep mixing and add spices. Spread the onions on the bread. Sprinkle sumac and nuts, and repeat.

Step 2

Preheat your oven to 450 F. Chicken for Musakhan is cut either into 2 halves (of a whole chicken) or into 4 pieces. Then, dry it with a paper towel.

Step 3

Mix the spices together with the olive oil, then brush onto each chicken piece from all sides. Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, making sure the chicken is not tightly packed so it has enough room to crisp up.

Step 4

Cover with aluminum foil, and bake for about 1 hour, then uncover and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, so the skin gets crispy and develops a golden-brown color.

Step 5

Start with 1 Naan or Taboon. Using a slotted spoon, take some onions and spread on top. Depending on the size of your bread, add enough to reach the edges but not so much that it piles up in the middle.

Step 6

Sprinkle some sumac all around and some fried pine nuts.
