Merhaba Binnur.
I was wondering if there is any Turkish yemegi with chicken and yesil fasulye...or string beans. I make one version at home that my husband likes but I am not very satisfied by it personally.

Merhaba Newbi,
We don't usually cook green beans with chicken. We usually like it with lamb cubes, or ground beef or with olive oil as a cold dish:) I already posted Flat Beans with Lamb. If you like use chicken instead of lamb.
Here is the address:

great site with some fantastic recipes i went to a turkish restaurant recently and had a chicken dish made with almonds, honey, apricots etc i cant remember what it was called but it would be good if you could find something for me? thanks x

Hi there. Thanks for posting so many wonderful Turkish recipes. I am an American woman engaged to a Turkish man, so naturally I want to learn to cook the things he likes to eat. It's great to find so many great recipes in one place!

I am wondering about a dish that some of his relatives make. It's more of a side dish or a sandwich. It involves one layer of a bread (like a thick gozleme dough) with chicken and potatoes,etc., in the middle, then a top layer of bread. This is baked then cut into squares and served in a stack to compliment the meal. Have you heard of this? His family lives in Istanbul, but they originate from the Malatya region and I think the recipe is from their village. I would love to learn how to make it...

Thanks Again,

Hi Tanya,
Thank you for the nice comment:)
I think what you are asking is "Sac Boregi". The dough looks like a
thick Gozleme and the filling may be different things. Like spinach
and ground beef, cheese, or potato...and the name will have the
filling in it. Like "Patatesli Borek" (potato borek)...... I'll post
it soon for you:)
Take care,

Does anyone have a recipie for tavuk dolmasi. Chicken stuffed with feta, mushrooms, and spinach. It also had a lovely raspberry burgundy wine sauce over it. Had it at a lovely turkish restaurant in Madison Wi. Thanks

Just wonder if anyone has a tavuk guvec recipe. I loved this dish so much down in Sarimsakli at the Onbes Kardesler restaurant that sometimes I ordered it two times a day, for lunch and dinner. I could live on that casserole. It was so good!

SO GLAD to have found your site! When I lived in Izmir as a teenager, we used to have donors almost every day for lunch. The chicken ones would always have this awesome hot red pepper you could put on them--do you know what that was? It would make my day if i could recreate that experience completely!

Is it Chicken Doner? If it is I've already posted it under the Chicken and Kebabs sections:)
On the site, below the google ads on the right, there's a search box.
So you can search on my site if "TC" is selected, it will help you to
find any recipe that I have posted.
Take care,

We have a Turkish restaurant in our small town and the food is wonderful, especially the Shepherd's salad.My daughter just tried the one on your site and it came out as good as the one in the restaurant. Do you have a recipe for "Yogurtlu Tavuk" which is layers of chicken, fried bread and garlic yogurt. Thank you.

There may be variations to the recipes even with the same name and slightly different from region to region. Therefore it is difficult to identify which one exactly you are asking for because marinade ingredients can be different. The cooking style of chicken also be different.I am going to post it in the future:)

I am trying to find an old recipie I had. It is for chicken breast stuffed with pistachios that I think had been soaked in Raki or served with a Raki sauce. It was an unusual Turkish dish, and I can't find the recipie anywhere now. Do you have any idea what this dish is? Teşekkür ederim

I very much enjoyed a Turkish stuffed chicken last week while in Dalyan. The chicken was filled with some kind of rice-based stuffing which was very flavourful. Do you perhaps have a recipe for this?


At 4:41 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

Hi John,
There is few recipes for stuffed chicken with the different kind of stuffing. I am going to post them in the future:)

Hello Binnur,

I was stationed at Incirlik AB and enjoy the food at the Red Onion. They served a chicken dish that theu called the Charlie Special which had a tomato base with potatos. Any idea what it was or have a recipe for it?

Thanks, Eric

Hi Eric,
It seems very simple chicken-potato dish cooked with fresh tomato or tomato paste:) I've already posted so many potato dishes. One of them is Chicken with Potato. Here is the address;

On the site, below the google ads on the right, there's a search box. So you can search on my site if "TC" is selected, it will help you to find any recipe that I have posted. You can also search the word of any vegetable or meat etc.

Merhaba Binnur,
I'd like to make something like the Istanbul Pilavi for my daughter's wedding using whole chicken. Is there a variation for larger batches?

At 11:04 PM, Blogger Binnur said...

You should use only the chicken breast as in the recipe. You can multiply it if you wish:)
