I Can Still Bounce and Not Break

When I opened my eyes this morning, I was a bit afraid to move. I was sure I was going to have all kinds of aches and sore spots.  But guess what...perfect!  Nothing at all hurts.  I guess I can still bounce!  Cool!

A while back I saw this dish on one of my favorite Turkish blogs:  http://www.turkeysforlife.com/search?updated-max=2013-01-09T14:22:00%2B02:00&max-results=4

I really wanted to make it but had no recipe.  Then within a day or two I saw it posted on another favorite Turkish blog: http://www.turkeysforlife.com/search?updated-max=2013-01-09T14:22:00%2B02:00&max-results=4

I altered mine because I was out of lemon but I did have mushrooms.

You can use a rotisserie chicken or roast your own.  I roasted one for Teddy and talked her into letting me use some of the meat.  She also let me use the carcass to make stock.

Start by sauteing a medium diced onion in 4 T. of butter.  Add some diced celery and mushrooms. 

Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Add the diced chicken and stir it all around.

Add 2 cups of rice.

And 1 drained can of chick peas.

And 4 cups of chicken stock.

I also added 2 packets of Swanson concentrated chicken stock to enrich the flavor.  Bring it to a boil then turn it down to low, cover it and let it cook for about 25 minutes.

Fluff it up and serve it in bowls sprinkled with sliced green onions.


easy peasy.

i like this recipe.

I like Turkish food and since almost all pizzerias over gere are owned by turks or people from Iraq they often have dishes from their previous home countries on the menue :-)

I'm glad that You didn't feel any pain toay, I know I would have :-)

Well, I am glad to hear that there are no ill effects from yesterday's gymnastics! That's a good thing, too, or this wonderful recipe wouldn't be shared with us!
