This is another simple Turkish recipe that I learned while living in Turkey. It consists of potato and chicken cubes in a thin, tomato water. It makes a nice, light lunch that's perfect for Istanbul's rainy winter days. Afiyet olsun!
- 5 potatoes (cubed)
- 2 chicken breasts (cubed)
- 2 tomatoes (see step 1 for preparation)
- 1 medium onion (minced)
- 1 tablespoon red pepper paste (plus some or large TBSP)
- 4 tablespoons oil
- Cut the tomatoes in half, dividing the top from the bottom. In a medium-large pot use a grader to shred the tomatoes until all that is left is the skin. Discard the skin.
- Adding onions, pepper paste, and oil to pot, stir over high heat until onions are soft.
- Add potatoes, cook 5-10 minutes stirring occasionally.
- Add chicken, cook until just white.
- Add hot water until food is covered (a little more than 2 drinking glasses should be enough).
- Cook until potatoes are done (~25 minutes).
- Serve with red pepper flakes to season.
I liked this dish. I added paprika seasoning and pepper to make it a little spicier. Yum :)
