Raisin chicken

My mom got today’s recipe from my aunt and me and my sister use to love it when we were little. We didn’t have it for a while and now made it together after a while and it still tasted amazing. It has great, deep, sweet and sour flavor. I don’t know how traditional it is but my efforts to find a similar recipe online didn’t bring any results so I decided it’s worth sharing anyways.

To make the sauce I used 1 cup of ketchup, 1/2 cup of olive oil, 1/2 cup of raisins and 2 tablespoons of curry. It may sound a little weird but it has an amazing sweet and sour flavor. Let’s get to it, shall we?

I started by dicing 2 big chicken breasts into little squares. Then I cut an onion into wedges and chopped garlic. Then I basically mixed everything, together with the sauce ingredients, in a oven safe dish.


Then I baked the chicken with all the ingredients at 350 F for about an hour. For the first half an hour I covered it with aluminum foil so it wouldn’t burn on top too much. Sauce thickened and I made sure that chicken was cooked inside. Depending on the oven, the dish might need extra few minutes.


And that’s it! Isn’t it crazy how easy? We usually eat it over rice.
