Baked Stuffed Onions with Ras El Hanout Chicken

© 2021 |

© 2021 |

Ras el hanout is a spice blend from North Africa, where it is used heavily in Moroccan cooking. This Moroccan spice blend is full of warm spices (like paprika, cumin, ginger, nutmeg, coriander, turmeric, cardamom, cayenne and mace, etc.) that gives the dish a unique aroma and exotic, robust, but slightly sweet flavour. If you don't have ras el hanout, garam masala or curry would work too. Or just use your favourite seasonings.

  • 6 Yellow onions
  • 250 g Carrots
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil (plus more for drizzling)
  • 150 ml Chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp Parsley, chopped (plus more for garnishing)
  • 250 g Chicken mince
  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Fresh ginger root, peeled and grated
  • 1 tsp Ras el hanout
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cut 1/2-inch slice from top of each onion and trim small amount from bottom end so onion stands upright. Peel away the outer skin. Using a melon baller or teaspoon, scoop out the insides of the onions, leaving two layers intact. Don't worry if you make a hole in the bottom.
  2. Set aside the hollowed out onions, and coarsely chop the scooped out pieces. Peel and slice the carrots. Heat the olive oil and chopped onions in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onions, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and have a glossy look. Remove half of them and place in a bowl. Set aside to cool briefly.
  3. Add the sliced carrots to the skillet with the remaining onions. Cook for a few more minutes. Pour in chicken stock and bring it to a boil. Cover and cook for 15 minutes over medium heat until carrots are soft. Puree the carrot-onion-mixture until smooth. Stir in chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the sauce into a casserole dish. Set aside.
  4. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Add chicken mince into the bowl with onions. Stir in the garlic, ginger and ras el hanout. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Divide the filling between 6 hollowed onions and place them on the top of the carrot sauce. Drizzle the onions with a little of olive oil. Bake in the middle of hot oven for 40-45 minutes, or until onions are soft and cooked, and the stuffing has turned golden brown on top.

What a unique idea. I've stuffed peppers, potatoes and other vegetables, but never onions. The Ras el hanout is new to me and it contains so many of my favorite spices. I love everything about this recipe. Ras el hanout

Me gustan mucho las especias Ras el Hanout, aunque las consumo poco porque los de casa son poco especieros. También me gusta el relleno que le has puesto a esas cebollas. Muy ricas.

Thats so special stuffed onions. Love the idea and like to try. Looks so delicious and tempting to taste.

Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 30/11/21 06:13

This looks delicious, as always, although probably not one for me, as I seem to have developed a recent and not very nice reaction to all but a tiny portion of onions in a dish!

I can still look, drool, smell the mix of those delicious herbs and spices and dream though, so thanks for sharing! :)

Nancy Chan 30/11/21 06:25

David 30/11/21 18:50

Angie, Very attractive and exotic looking dish! My only problem is that I don't like onions unless they're cooked down in the dish. Its both a texture and taste thing with me...and it drives my wife crazy. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

I used to make onions stuffed with creamed peas for the holidays. They were always well received, and so delicious. It never occurred to me to add chicken. I love this idea, and I’m going to give it a try.

Pure Yum Angie. We love Ras el hanout and cook with it regularly, so we'll add this to the rotation...
