Stuffed peppers with chicken


I believe stuffed vegetables is one of the most popular dishes in traditional Turkish homes. If you are served any stuffed delight, be sure you are a special guest in this home. For some unknown reason, many Turkish think that making 'dolmas' is very time consuming, but personally I believe it is one of the easiest dishes in Turkish cuisine. Not too messy but always a winner!!!

What we need:

several peppers, deseeded
300 gr ground chicken
100 gr of rice
fresh mint and parsley
salt and pepper
red pepper flakes
onion
garlic
2 chopped tomatoes
1 bay leave
1 l of water or chicken stock
yogurt for garnish

What we have to do:

1. Mix ground chicken, chopped onion and garlic, mint, parsley, salt and pepper, red pepper flakes, washed and drained rice, 1 chopped tomato.

2. Clean the peppers.

3. Stuff the peppers with the filling.

4. Put peppers into a pot and pour over water. Add bay leave and 1 chopped tomato. Simmer for 30-40 min. Serve with yogurt. Enjoy!!!
