    Absolutely delicious. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and I added a diced honeynut squash. It is so simple to make, yet so flavorful and comforting. Also I finely chopped my walnuts instead of blended them and really enjoyed the texture they added to the stew. Thank you!

    Hi, thank you so much for the nice food you make. I am Persian just want to let you know that in fesenjan we great the onion nd there is no need of oil inside your food as walnut itself has enough. The fesenjan is combination of walnut and pomegranate paste. To make sure it tast nice you add the chicken almost at the end (cook it separately). The original food has no spice except tumeric. No need of salt instead use more pomegranate paste and if you like it sweet add some sugar. This food can be prepared with meatballs as well. The walnut should be cooked on low heat for while for better result.
    Anyway thank you so very much for making Persian food. Enjoy❤️

    Hi Elise,
    My husband is allergic to all tree nuts (so basically everything but peanuts). What would you suggest is place in walnuts or other nuts? Thanks!
