to buy coriander

Hi teachers,

I am going to the market to buy coriander. Correct?
Add coriander to the chicken in the pot?

Many thanks in advance.

The first sentence is fine. It is also possible to leave out the article before ‘market’.
I presume you realise the second sentence is not a question.

Thank you, BN.
Oh, yes I realised now. Suppose somoene is cooking chicken and I ask her to "add coriander to the chicken in the pot.

That’s okay, but it would be more natural to say ‘add coriander to the pot’ or ‘add coriander to the chicken.’ As the chicken is in the pot, there is no need to mention both the chicken and the pot.

Thank you very much, BN.
