Chicken Handi

The flavors and aromas that a "handi" or "clay pot" add to foods are incredible! Having said that, this recipe is fantastic with or without a handi! it's cooked in a home pot and perfectly simmered! This is a family favorite that we don't get tired of eating every month.

Serve with naan or rice, and trust me when I say that the only thing better than cooking this dish is eating it!

From my kitchen to yours, have fun!
