Egyptian Chicken

Submitted by: NGSMART1

Introduction

Traditional Egyptian dish that my best friend's mother taught us to make when I was growing up. This is a very simple, delicious recipe. Nutritional information is done with whole chicken breasts.

Ingredients

    Cut up whole chicken (to save calories, boneless, skinless breasts could be used but taste would be compromised)

    Thinly sliced Potatoes (use enough to cover the bottom of a large baking dish).

    Sliced Tomotoes

    Freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 to 2 depending on the size of your dish)

    Spices to taste (Cumin, red pepper, salt are typical. Allspice is another you can use for an authentic Arabic flavor).

Directions

Thinly slice the potatoes and cover the bottom of a large baking dish with them. Layer the sliced tomatoes over the potatoes and finish up with the chicken on top. Make sure to sprinkle each layer with the spices. Squeeze the lemons and pour the juice over the whole dish. Roast at 350 degrees for 60-90 minutes (again it depends on how large your dish is and how big the chicken pieces are). The potatoes should be soft and the chicken done.

If you are using boneless, skinless chicken breasts to reduce calories, make sure to add a little bit of fat free chicken broth to make up for the lack of chicken juices.
