Sumac Chicken

A simple dish that is as easy to make as it is full of flavor. Put it together in 5 minutes then forget about it for an hour, and voila: delicious, fall-off-the-bone chicken that tastes, well, of sumac. Sumac is a bit tart?but not overly. It tastes like lemon and is therefore delicious on dishes […]
