Chicken Baked On a Clay Tile

(Kiremitte Tavuk)

<br />Chicken Baked On a Clay Tile
1/4 chicken, bone in, with skin
1 onion, sliced
1-2 clove garlic, sliced
1/2 red Bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 cubanalle pepper, thinly sliced
If you bake white part of the chicken, place 1 tsp butter over the vegetables

Rub the chicken with oregano, salt and pepper. Fry the skin side for about 4 minutes in a Teflon pan.

Stack the mixture of onion, garlic, red Bell, cubanalle peppers and salt in the middle of the earthenware plate. Place the lightly fried chicken at the top with skin side up.

Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C). Place the dish on a middle rack of the oven and cook for about 40 minutes. If you want to be sure it is cooked, you can make a small cut in the chicken at the thickest point to see if the juices run clear. If you bake too long the chicken becomes too dry.

What a wonderful site. I returned to the UK from my annual visit to Turkey on Saturday, and today ws desperate for Shakshuka - and here I found it! And everything else I love, too. Thank you so much.
