This recipe is one of the handful of easy Turkish recipes that I learned while studying abroad in Turkey. The dish consists of cubed chicken in a tomato sauce...quite simple, but it tastes good! Turks usually eat it with bread, however it can be eaten alone as well. If the tomatoes don't seem to provide enough juices I have sometimes added a little water (probably not necessary, but you can judge this towards the end). Serve in a sided dish or shallow bowl. Afiyet olsun!
