Sultan's Pleasure with Chicken

A long time ago the Moose's Lodge decided it would be a fun tradition to pick a random place each Friday and cook a dish from that place.  Well we certainly haven't done it every Friday, but periodically we do manage.  So here is one that we loved and have gone back to a couple of times now. 

From Turkey:  Sultan's Pleasure with Chicken  (should be with turkey considering!)

Ingredients:  Serves 2 - 3
Chicken & Vegetables
2 small chicken breasts cut into cubes.
2 T butter
2-3 green onions chopped
1-2 cloves garlic chopped
1 cabenelle pepper chopped (we have added a jalapeno for additional spice)
1 large tomato chopped
1 C chicken stock
salt & pepper to taste

Eggplant Mash
1 large eggplant
3 C water mixed with the juice of 1/2 a lemon and 1 tsp of salt
3 T butter
2 T flour
1 C milk
2 T mozzarella cheese grated
salt & pepper to taste


Eggplant Mash (broil the eggplant prior to starting the chicken & vegetables)
1. Turn the oven onto broil.
2. Poke holes into the eggplant (so it doesn't blow up!)
3. Place on tray and broil/roast for 25 - 35 minutes (or until soft)
4. Remove from oven, cut off ends, peel off skin (should come off easily)
5. Soak the eggplant in large bowl with water, lemon, salt mixture for a few minutes.
6. While the eggplant is soaking, melt butter, then add flour, salt, and pepper to create a roux.
7. Remove eggplant from soak and squeeze excess liquid out with hands.
8. Add eggplant to roux and mash eggplant slowly.
9. Add milk and beat until smooth with no chunks of eggplant. (add extra mozzarella here if you want a richer creamier dish)

Chicken & Vegetables
1. Saute the chicken in the butter.
2. Once cooked, add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil.
3. Lower the heat and cover with a lid cooking for an additional 15-20 minutes.

1. Place eggplant mash in a bowl
2. Scoop chicken & vegetable mixture over the mash.
3. Garnish with grated mozzarella

Afiyet olsun! (Bon Appetit in Turkish)
