- Left over cooked chicken pull from the carcass or raw chicken breasts (cubes.)
- 2x Tins chopped toms
- Sliced bell pepper
- Garlic (amount required to taste)
- 2tsp cumin
- 1tsp salt
- A few twists of black pepper
- 1tsp paprika
- 2 medium onions
- A good squirt of tom purée/paste
If using left over cooked chicken,
Pull all the chicken you want to use off the carcass and leave aside.
Take each onion, halve and then slice them, any shape or size
Is required you your individual taste.
Take the bell pepper, opens it and remove the seeds then slice thinly.
In a large deep pan,
Sauté the onions and peppers in a little olive until nice and soft but keep an eye on them so they don’t burn, slowly add the garlic so it doesn’t burn and become bitter.
Once they are nice and soft you can add your tins of chopped tomatoes and put a good squirt of tomato purée in and add all your pepper, salt, cumin and paprika. Give it a good stir and then add the cooked chicken and bring to the boil.
Once it’s brought to the boil put it on a low heat and let it simmer for a while (20-40 mins) to heat the chicken up thoroughly to piping hot and let all them flavours mix together.
When it’s ready, serve up with traditional Turkish rice (see separate recipe post)
Or with hot crusty bread and enjoy!!
If you’re using raw chicken breasts, you can fry up the chicken and then the peppers and onions until soft adding in the rest of the ingredients bring to the boil. still be sure to let this simmer for a while until cooked through.
Keep me posted on how yours goes.
