Every time I sit down to watch Game of Thrones I fantasize about eating like they do. Giant legs of lamb. Huge steins of beer. Heaps and heaps of fruit. Horns filled with wine. It all looks so delicious and satisfying. And, in spite of all the killing, really makes me want to go there. But fortunately I don’t have to tempt fate and risk my life to get a hold of some good Essos chicken. This recipe delivers with huge appetite-crushing flavor. It’s a meal fit for a Dothraki!
