Chicken stew with groats (or a variation of the Chicken Church Stew)

I had cooked groats only once before. It turned out fine and I bought a groats again from one of the small Arabian spice shops around the Women’s Market.

And when one searches for the path to something, usually the thing alone finds a path to it. So my desire to break down the ordinary dishes and products we make and use on a daily basis has led me to this recipe from the special issue of “Ritual Dishes for Autumn Holidays” from Culinary Magazine. I saw the recipe for “Chicken Church Stew” (or more simply Chicken stew with groats).

Here’s how I made it using this recipe. Enjoy! 🙂
