Sour Cherries

The sour cherries are starting to mature. Time to make rice with chicken and sour cherries!

After pitting the tiny fruits and leaving my surroundings stained red, I boil some basmati rice in slightly salted water until almost done.

I grease oven-proof pot and line the bottom with flatbread, fill one layer of rice, add pieces of chicken meat, some cinnamon, coriander and pepper, the sour cherries, and another layer of rice.

Some butter on top, not too little, cover, and into the oven for about 20 minutes.

For serving, I flip the pot over onto a plate and serve the rice with a salad (on this picture from homegrown chickpeas) and some yoghurt.
