This is served with medium-grain rice. This, as most Palestinian dishes, can be made with either lamb or chicken. The chicken version is as per the lamb version except the following: Once the onion is lightly browned, add chicken and brown. Add water and follow usual directions. When the chicken is cooked, remove chicken and set aside. Before serving, sprinkle chicken with salt, baharat/curry powder and olive oil (optional) and brown under grill. Serve on top of rice with small bowls of soup.
