BismAllah .. and welcome folks!  Guess what?  This is a Palestinian recipe Smiley

In Palestine, 'Fatteh' generally refers to any meal that contains pieces of fried or roasted bread.

Ingredients for Chicken Fatteh

1 small chicken
1 onion
1 cup rice
1 pita bread
500 gms sour yogurt
3 garlic cloves
Spices and seasoning to taste


Clean and season the chicken to taste (salt, pepper, cardamom seeds, and nutmeg).

Peel the onion and place the whole onion with the chicken and a cup of water in an oven- proof dish.  Roast in medium oven for one hour.

Cut the pita bread into small square pieces and fry them.  Cook the rice.  Place the bread in the bottom of the serving pan (which needs to be a semi-deep dish.)

After the chicken is cooked, pour the chicken stock onto the bread and mix with one crushed garlic clove and one spoon of cooked rice.

Place the remaining rice on top of the bread and chicken stock combination and make sure it's fully covered.

Mix the two remaining crushed garlic cloves into the yogurt and pour the combination over the rice and bread. Remove the bones from the chicken, and place the chicken pieces on top of the yogurt.  Garnish with parsley or almonds.  Instead of parsley, you can also use chopped corriander.  Serve immediately and enjoy every morsel of it Smiley

Note:  Instead of cooking the chicken in the oven, you can also cook it on the cooker like we make pot roast.

This Middle-Eastern dish is a special fav in Syria and Lebanon ... a true Damascene dish.  If you want to follow the Syrian-Leb recipe, you'll get the most perfect chicken fetteh recipe at Feel-Good-Foodie OR at Syrian Foodie.

Aw! this too is great.  That bit on breaking up the pita bread and putting the pieces along the base reminds me of the burrito pie I had put up here.  But of course, this one is more like a chicken-rice-yogurt "pie" with the burrito-like pita base.  Wonderful but just a bit more time consuming than basque baked chicken.
