About Food – Ossetian Chicken with Sour Cream

In this recipe from Ossetia we show how to make chicken with sour cream and herbs. This dish is usually made in a large clay pot, using a whole young chicken. We used a clay pot but the dish can also be made in a pan or in individual small clay pots. We used chicken breasts instead of a whole chicken.
