Chicken with Spiced Yogurt Sauce

(Yoğurtlu Bastı)

Chicken with Spiced Yogurt Sauce
4 pieces chicken thighs, boneless, skinless, cut in cubes
1 medium onion, sliced
1-2 garlic cloves, sliced
3-4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3/4 cup hot water

Spiced Yogurt Sauce:
1/2 cup Turkish plain yogurt, at room temperature
1 tsp cardamom, ground
1 tsp fresh ginger root, grated

2-3 tbsp blanched almonds, slivered, toasted

Mix all the Yogurt Sauce ingredients in a bowl, put aside.

Meanwhile, saute the onion with olive oil for 1-2 minutes in a medium size pan. Add in the chicken, garlic, salt and pepper. Continue to saute until the smell of garlic comes out while stirring. Pour the hot water into the pan. Cover and cook until the chicken is tender for about 10 minutes at medium-low heat. Don't dry them up! Leave some juice in it. Stir the dish at half way of cooking.

Add the Spiced Yogurt Sauce, stir and heat it up for 2-3 minutes at low heat. Do not cover it! Arrange them on a serving platter. Garnish with some toasted almonds, serve with Turkish Rice Pilaf on the side.

2 servings.
