Saçaklı Mantı

Saçaklı Mantı
1 leaf of Turkish yufka*, first roll it, than cut it into strips about
1 cm wide
1 large chicken breast, skin and bone in
2 cup chicken broth
1 cup chickpeas, in can, rinsed and drained
1 onion, cut in small pieces
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp crushed tomato, in can
Salt
Pepper

Garlic Yogurt Sauce:
1/2 cup plain yogurt, in room temperature
2 garlic cloves, mashed with salt

Garnish:
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Red pepper
Cayenne pepper

Place the chicken breast in water to cover, add salt and pepper. First bring to boil, then turn the heat down. Simmer the chicken breast for about 20 minutes. Take the chicken out of the stock. Discard the skin and the bones and let it cool down. Tear it apart in medium sized chunks with your fingers.

Saute the onion with olive oil for few minutes. Add the chickpeas,crushed tomato and chicken broth. Cook for about 7-8 minutes over low heat. Now, add the chicken pieces in it, stir.

Meanwhile spread yufka strips all over the oven tray. Preheat the oven 375 F (180 C) and bake until the colour turns to light beige. Place yufka in the service plate. Pour the cooked chickpeas, chicken with the broth all over them. Yufka should soak the stock.

Mix all the sauce ingredients, spread all over them.. Heat up the olive oil with the peppers, pour all over the dish. If you like sprinkle some dry mint also.

2 servings.

*You should use Turkish Yufka to make Sacakli Manti. Do not use Phillo Pastry:)
