Yummy dish!! In Syria, you can find this dish without chicken and usually served in the morning especially in Damascus. I find it is way too heavy to eat in the morning so I add the chicken pieces to it and serve for dinner. We love it.
One cup of Chickpeas
One cup of Ground Sesame (Tahini Paste)
One cup of Plain Yogurt
Arabic (Pita) Bread
Almonds or Pine Nuts
One crushed Clove of Garlic
How to prepare:
Boil the chicken breast until it is fully cooked skimming the froth as it appears.
When the chicken is cooked, take out of water and shred.
Boil the chickpeas with water for about half an hour (keep the water).
Cut the Arabic bread into pieces and deep fry them until golden.
Mix the ground sesame (Tahini Paste) with the yogurt, garlic, salt, lemon, and one cup of the water that you saved from boiling the chickpeas or the chicken.
In a tray, put the pita pieces on the bottom then add the chickpeas.
Add the shredded chicken pieces on top of the chickpeas, then add the Tahini sauce that you prepared to cover all the chicken.
Using a sauce pan, fry the almonds or the pine nuts in sizzling butter until they are golden brown and add it on top of the tahini sauce.
Garnish with some parsley if desired.
