For this recipe, I already had cilantro chutney on hand. I love to eat my low-amine cilantro chutney by the spoonful, but it also works well in recipes as a flavor base. The meat is tender and falls off the bone, and is a simple, easy way to prepare chicken.

6 chicken drumsticks, skin removed

2 Tbsp oil

1/4 C blueberry juice

1/2 C cilantro chutney

1/2 tsp ascorbic acid

1 Tbsp sugar

2 C vegetable stock

3 Tbsp corn starch

3 Tbsp cold water

  • Heat a high-walled pot to medium with the oil.
  • When oil is hot, add chicken. Turn once, so that chicken has a chance to brown.
  • Ensure chicken is not stuck to the bottom of the pot, then add blueberry juice, cilantro chutney, ascorbic acid, sugar, and vegetable stock.
  • When it comes to a boil, reduce to a simmer. Simmer cilantro chicken for 30 minutes.
  • Mix corn starch and cold water. Once dissolved, pour into the pot and immediately stir well.
  • Serve hot, with sauce.

Low Amine Cilantro Chutney

I love cilantro. I love it so much that I could literally eat it by the handful. Which is, essentially, what I end up doing when I make low amine cilantro chutney. Except it’s by the spoonful. Nom.

1 large bundle cilantro, well washed

1″ piece of ginger, roughly chopped

1 Tbsp fresh green chilies (I like Serrano or Thai bird chilies)

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp ascorbic acid

3 Tbsp water

3 green onions

  • Put everything in a food processor and pulse until rough, then puree till mostly smooth.
  • Serve, or just pour the cilantro chutney into your mouth straight from the container. That’s what I do.
