Algerian coriander chicken Djej B’l Qasbour is often described as “chicken with saffron and olives” in recipe forums, as these can be some of the more striking ingredients of the dish, but “chicken with
coriander” is most likely a more accurate translation. Coriander as an element is enriched by the presence of both green coriander leaves, and roughly ground coriander seeds. This recipe is a fusion of flavours influenced amongst others by French, Berber and mediterranean cuisine that work wonderfully together and are a great treat for the taste buds

Once the food is cooked it can be served immediately. Ideal accompaniments for this recipe are steamed Basmati rice,
