Chicken Tzimmes

Passover is celebrated by members of the Jewish faith every year, commemorating the anniversary of their exodus from Egyptian slavery. This year, Passover spans from April 5th – April 13th, and this chicken tzimmes recipe would make a lovely addition to your celebratory feast! For those unfamiliar with the term, tzimmes is generally understood as Yiddish for “a big fuss” and is essentially a casserole that is both savory and sweet. A tzimmes can feature only vegetables or include meat and any combination of fruit, most notably prunes. This particular recipe features chicken, along with an array of fruits and vegetables to hit those savory and sweet notes. You’ll find many of the ingredients in our Weekly Sale from March 30th – April 5th, so it’s a great time to give this dish a try!
