CHICKEN UN TURKISH SAUCE


CHICKEN UN TURKISH SAUCE


This is probably the chicken recipe I've most frequently done in my entire life. I found it many years ago in a small Turkish recipe book my mom had and it became quite usual in my kitchen. Everyone has enjoyed it a lot each time I've cooked it and in addition it is really easy to do and is terribly good!

Turkish cuisine is very interesting, yummy and varied thanks to the influences it has since it is located in Europe and Asia. The best thing I could bring back from my trip in Turkey were definately the turkish spices most used in their cuisine such as saffronsumaccuminpepper, dried mint leaves...

Called Llahvuk Yahnisi in Turkish, llavuk: chicken breast and yahnisi or yahni: stew or ragout, it is always prepared using extra virgin olive oil, onions, tomatoes and the remaining ingredients you'll find below, however I like giving it my personal touch by adding the black olives that combine so well with this dish. 

♥ With all my affection I would like to dedicate this post to a relative that use to love this recipe and that is no longer with us. Fernande, ceci est pour toi ♥
