Serves 6 to 8


  • 2 large frying chickens, cut up
  • 1 cup Manischewitz® Matzo Meal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup peanut oil
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 4 cups applesauce
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange rind
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup blanched, slivered almonds


Roll chicken parts in a mixture of the matzo meal, salt and pepper. Fry in the hot oil, in a large skillet, until brown on all sides. Remove chicken from pan as pieces are browned. When all chicken is browned, drain off all but 2 tablespoons of the fat. Add onions and cook until tender. Return chicken to pan. Mix applesauce, orange juice, orange rind and cinnamon. Pour over chicken; cover and cook about 30 minutes or until tender. Add almonds and cook 5 minutes.
