Chicken & Rice / 2 Turkish Ways

A most popular dish with chicken: Chicken Rice! I’m going to show two ways in Turkish Cuisine we make. First Chicken Kapama “Tavuk Kapama” / “Mişöriz – Mishoriz”; second one “Tavuklu Nohutlu Pilav”.

Chicken & Rice / 2 Turkish Ways

Ingredients For Chicken Kapama:

  • 1 whole chicken except breast part or about 8-10 pieces of drumstick
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2+1/2 cup long grain rice like Turkish “Osmancık” or “Baldo” or “Cal Rose
  • About 1 tsp salt

How To Make Chicken Kapama?

Preparing The Chicken
  • I used whole chicken. But you can use drumsticks too. First press from the breast part, and make some movements to see the joined parts. And then cut the thighs, then wings. Also, cut the thigh into two pieces. 
  • After cutting, cook the chicken pieces. I used a pressure cooker but you can use regular pan also. Add enough water and some salt, and cook until it is almost soft for about 20 minutes.
Cooking The Rice
  1. To soak the rice; add rice to a large bowl, then add warm water and salt. Wait at least for half an hour or up to 5 hours.
  2. Dice onions and saute in a wide pan in olive oil.
  3. Over the sautéed onions, add your soaked rice after draining well, and wash a couple of times to get rid of the starch. Continue to sauté the rice couple of more minutes. Don’t add salt too much because we used salt for the chicken stock as well.
  4. Level the sautéed rice and place the chicken pieces on top of it.
  5. Add 3+1/2 cups chicken stock, cover the lid. Bake in the preheated 170C degree oven until rice is soft. Check after about 25 minutes. After the rice is soft open the lid and broil until the chicken skin has light golden color.

And our Chicken & Rice / 2 Turkish Ways is ready. You can serve with this dish, Turkish Ezme Salad , “Cacık” or different salad types. And also in these hot summer days you can serve Turkish Basil Sherbet. It is good choice for dinner too. Check these chicken recipes too:
