2 medium red onions, diced
¼ cup Spiced Butter or 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, divided

One 4- to 5-pound chicken, cut into 10 pieces, wings reserved for another use
¼ cup dry red wine
Juice of 1 lime
2 hard-boiled eggs, peeled


Combine the onions, a pinch of salt, and half of the spiced butter in a Dutch oven or other large deep pot over low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden, about 15 minutes. Add the remaining butter, the cardamom, black pepper, cloves, garlic, ginger, and berbere and cook until the onions soften and take on the color of the spices, about 10 minutes.

Add 2 cups of the chicken stock and the chicken legs and thighs, bring to a simmer, and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the remaining ½ cup chicken stock and the wine, bringing back to a simmer, and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the chicken breasts and simmer for 20 minutes.
