Spicy chicken with light relish and Turkish pilaf


Spicy chicken with light relish and Turkish pilaf - I guess it is the longest name I have ever given to a dish in my blog!!! That is definitely because I had no idea what to make for dinner yesterday and was too lazy to go shopping, so made a bit of this, a bit of that and here we are- dinner's ready!!! I added some smoked paprika to get some smoky flavour which I just love and some chilli to get some kick!!! I love it too!!! Quite easy and tasty dinner!!!

What we need:

4 chicken breasts
1 tbsp of smoked paprika powder
1 chilli pepper
4 tomatoes
2 onions
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 lemon
2 bell peppers
salt and pepper to taste

for relish:

2 tomatoes
1 cucumber
1 onion
fresh parsley
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

for Turkish pilaf:

1 glass of rice
3 tbsp of boiled chickpeas
1 tbsp of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 glasses of water

What we have to do:

1. Season chicken breasts with spices and drizzle some lemon juice. Fry chicken for 4 min in a pan with some olive oil. Then transfer meat to an ovenproof dish and add slices of onion, tomato, lemon, peppers. Put in the oven for 25 min in 180C.
2. Wash the rice in water, drain it. Preheat oil in a pot, then add the washed rice and fry them for 3 min while stiring. Then add chickpeas and water. Boil rice for 10 min. Then put the lid on and turn the heat off. Leave for 10 more min.
3. For relish, cut vegetables in small pieces, add lemon juice, olive oil and salt and pepper.
4. Serve with lavaş, tortilla or your favourite bread! Enjoy!!!
