Sparkling Chicken (Maden Suyuyla Tavuk)
8 boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
1 little bottle of Perrier or 1-1 1/2 cups of any sparkling (mineral) water
1 tbsp chopped dill
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp paprika / red chili powder
1 tsp ground black pepper
3 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped thinly in rounds
any kind of fresh pepper, chopped (I used small sweet yellow Italian peppers)
mushroom, chopped - as much as you want
juice of one lemon or lime
1 tbsp flour
2 tsp peppercorns
The main ingredients for this recipe are chicken and onion. You are free to add fresh peppers, mushroom, corn, carrots, etc. I try it with different ingredients every time, but fresh peppers and mushroom are the best.
-Marinate the chicken in a bowl for 20-30 minutes with sparkling water, 1 tbsp olive oil, dill, garlic, paprika, and ground black pepper.
-In a deep skillet, heat the oil and add onions. Stir for a couple of minutes and add peppers and mushroom. Drain the chicken and add in the skillet with peppercorns when mushroom looks cooked.
-In a small bowl, mix well 1 tbsp flour with juice of one lemon. Add this in when the chicken is cooked. If it gets pretty sticky with flour, you can add a little bit of hot water. Stir for 2-3 minutes and your sparkling chicken is ready.
