Have a wonderful Saturday🤗
Moghrabieh Chicken Sandwich with blanched veggies
.
.
Come to think of it, It has been quite a while since I came by St. Hubert. Less than okay with it. Miss all road trips. There’s no other way, so just trying to stay positive!
.
Great for Saturday breakfast. I got up early in the morning so as to indulge myself with this sandwich!
Ugly yet SUPER delicious. If you have a thing for the mighty spice blend such as Baharat(a.k.a. Lebanese 7 spice), come right in! Whether it goes with bread, either way it would be a likely idea for weekend fun. For sure, because very nice as a flavorful chicken breast recipe, it would keep it wonderful your foodie life regardless of quarantine. Take a shot!
>The quick summary of this chicken is on the comment thread. If needed, see attached. The second comment will be yours.

Fresh Japanese Tang Zhong Bread(a.k.a. water roux method bread), juicy and tender chicken breast riddled with an outstanding sauce served with veggies. Anyone? No fries or potatoes for a light option, it’s truly superb though.
To top it off, the great use of caraway too. Indescribably aromatic, you should keep it sensible your serving size! It never gets tired indeed such as to fill you with heavenly yumminess. If you have a plan to give it to your partner a surprise breakfast, just make sure that the bedroom door is closed before you get started.

The sauce base was adapted by that of Moghrabieh. Composition wise, it was adjusted by my liking in action. I’m guessing there will be a good chance to introduce the authentic version of Moghrabieh someday. That’s the reason I skipped the details of that version this time.
Roughly speaking, Moghrabieh had been considered as a Lebanese dish made with Moroccan couscous. Considering the correlation between the origin of the word of Moghrabieh and a few specific features of this dish, it’s safe to say it derived from so called now Magrib area.
But it has been factored by the cultural setting, so that it’s famous for many people as one of famous and popular Lebanese classic dishes nowadays.

  1. It’s close to the Lebanese favorite comfort, it made it so easy as to buy Lebanese couscous and Moghrabieh spice mix. Even though pearl couscous was introduced from Maghrib area, it is much more than that these days. Commonly It has been sold as a Lebanese couscous in the world market.
    Focusing the sauce method, there is room for reminding Moroccan M’qalli dishes. Practically it’s close to the Algerian Lentil Stew(Marqa L’3dess) though. Plus, merely 1/8 tsp. olive oil worked hard, so it can’t be in line with Daghmira(the sauce which came from that). Considering it hasn’t been fried at all, apparently it tastes incredible. You should try!

    Except for pearl couscous, despite a few variations, chickpeas and pearl onions are the most distinctive features of Moghrabieh. Basically it’s a great of balanced diet meal, so worth the try. It’s one of my winter favorites. Besides Konjac rice version based on low carb diet is one of my winter warming dishes. These are all in similar vein with the authentic in composition and formula way.
    Still the triumph of Moghrabieh could be the spice blend/mix, I guess.
    That’s one of the reasons this sandwich recipe comes up. Eventually it’s tweaked in action, but it doesn’t mean the heavenly delight of the authentic Moghrabieh came apart completely. It’s not closed off in the outside world.
    The whole point is, the combination of Japanese Tang Zhong bread and the exceptional sauce. In many versions, thick sauce is sprinkled on top of cooked couscous(mostly boiled/toasted) right before serve. Couscous absorbs incredibly savory sauce, it will give it terrific texture and taste. Nicely spiced chicken, pearl onions and chickpeas, all great, that would be a likely star of Moghrabieh though. Pearl couscous riddled with rich and aromatic sauce, that’s the first. And then, the others. It will make it indescribably flavorful.
    For this reason, I highly recommend matching it with white bread rather than hard bread. It goes nicely with soft, fluffy and moist bread. Specifically Japanese Tang Zhong bread would be the very best in many ways. Just dreamy.

    Japanese Tang Zhong bread will be the best for this sandwich. Because Gluten can’t hold all aces in the method, it will give it a dreamy texture. Not only in itself, but also in the overall contrast.
    I. Tips for ingredients and method
    1. For preparing chicken
    ▶️500g chicken breast
    ▶️2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
    ▶️3 Tbsp. lemon juice
    □ Marinate the chicken for about 15 min.
    □ Rinse it, make it completely drained.
    □ Right before brown, pat it well.
    □ Brown washed chicken, remove it from the pot.
    □ The marinade step would be a likely preparation in this recipe. I highly recommend keeping it preferably.
    2. For braising chicken
    ▶️1/8 tsp. olive oil
    ▶️300g onions chopped
    ▶️12 garlic cloves chopped
    ▶️Kosher salt and ground pepper to season
    ▶️The 1st spice mix
    • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
    • 2 to 3 bay leaves
    • 3/8 tsp. ground cloves
    • 1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
    ▶️The 2nd spice mix
    • 1 tsp. whole caraway seeds
    • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 tsp. whole cumin seeds
    • 1/8 tsp. Kosher salt
    • 1/2 tsp. Lebanese 7 spice(Baharat)
    – 1 tbsp. whole cumin seeds, 2 tsp. ground coriander, 1 tsp. ground cloves, 1/2 tsp. ground cardamom, 1+1/2 tbsp. paprika, 1 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
    ▶️3 cups water
    It might be better to hold the suggestion. The sauce should be reduced as it’s a very lean recipe.
    ▶️1/2 tsp. chicken stock
    Option 1 – Edamame broth or Lentil broth instead of chicken stock diluted with water
    Option 2 – Thicker such as starch and arrowroot flour.
    It’s not necessary to use it for this recipe. In case using arrowroot flour, it will give useful advantages of low carb and low GI friendly option.
    □ Take another pot.
    □ Once the heat comes through the deep pot, grease bottom of the pan with 1/8 tsp. olive oil.
    □ Cook garlic cloves until fragrant. Keep an eye on it to avoid burning garlic.
    □ Add onions, cook it until translucent.
    □ Adjust the heat to the low level, put salt and pepper. It will get sticky.
    □ Cook, stirring it by using a spatula until brown.
    □ Remove aromatic garlic cloves and onions from the pot.
    □ Add it with the first spice mix to the first pot.
