Prep Time:
45 minutes
Step 1
300 g chicken breasts - bo
3 clove crushed garlic • crushed
3 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp almonds
4 tbsp lemon juice
1 whole onion - medium • chop
2.5 cup vegetable oil
2 tbsp vinegar
1 to taste salt
1 to taste black pepper
1 loaf bread - pita - white
1 kg yogurt - plain

1. Wash the chicken breasts and soak them in vinegar.

2. Place a pot on the stove, then put the chicken breasts and chopped onions inside it. Pour in enough water to cover the chicken breasts and leave it on the low heated stove to cook. When the breasts are ready, save a cup of the chicken broth.

3. Take 2 cups of coin sized pieces of Arabic/ Pita bread. Fry the bread pieces in the vegetable oil until they become golden colored.

4. Mix the yogurt with the tahina, the garlic, and the lemon juice.

5. In a slightly deep serving dish, distribute the fried pieces of bread evenly on the bottom of the dish and pour the chicken broth (that you saved after cooking the breasts) on them. Then cover them with the yogurt and tahini mix (a paste made from ground, hulled sesame seeds that you can find in the supermarket) and place the little pieces of chicken breasts on top.

6. For garnishing, sprinkle some roasted almonds, chopped parsley, and a little bit of crushed fried bread.

Note: you can use roasted bread bits instead of fried ones.
