Chicken and Rice Yogurt Casserole

A very unique dish that is outrageously good. C’est tout.


Two Chicken Breasts
One cup of Rice
Three cups of Plain Yogurt
Salt & Pepper
One large piece of Arabic Pita Bread (or Tortilla)
One tablespoon of Cut Noodles
Two crushed Cloves of Garlic
Pine Nuts

How to Prepare:

Boil the chicken breasts for 45 minutes skimming the froth as it appears.

When the chicken is cooked, remove it (p.s. save the water) and shred it into small pieces.

Using a medium pot, melt one tablespoon of butter.

Add the cut noodles to the pot and stir until light brown.

Add the rice and the chicken pieces to the pot and mix all together.

Add two cups of the chicken water (you saved from boiling the chicken) to the rice.

Add a dash of salt and pepper to the water.

When the water starts to boil, lower the flame and cover the pot and let it cook for about 20 minutes until the water disappears.

Slice the pita bread into small squared pieces and deep fry them until light brown.

Place the fried pita bread in a Pyrex sheet to cover the bottom of it.

Now Place the chicken and rice on top of the pita bread.

Dilute the yogurt and mix with the crushed garlic and some salt.  then pouring it over the rice in the Pyrex.

If desired, you can fry some pine nuts with some butter and pour over the yogurt and serve.
