If my mother wants to surprise me for lunch, then it is Fatet Jaj فتة الدجاج which stands for chicken fatteh. Yummy, this dish is by far one of my very favorite dishes. It is very easy to prepare and is delicious. The only disadvantage about it, is you have to eat it as soon as it is served or prepare it like you prepare a fajita which is each ingredients separate and mixed just before you start eating. Reason is it includes fried bread and once the fried bread is soaked it looses the crunch, which is part of the taste.
I have posted before during Ramadan Fatet Bitinjan or what stands for Eggplant Fatteh which is also delicious, Fatteh in general is a famous dish severed differently in different ingredients and we Arabs just love it. I mean it really is delicious so I do suggest you give them both a try.
I find cooking is so much fun, and specially when trying something for the very first time, I think the origin of this dish is Syrian, and Syrians have great taste in food and are usually fantastic when preparing them. Apparently they serve this dish as a side dish, but when we have it for lunch it is always the main dish, and believe me it is very filling, am not sure how it can just be a side dish, unless it is serves in small quantity but then it is not fulfilling because it is too good to be in small portions.
Anyway, this dish is very highly recommended by me, and do not be afraid to add lemon and garlic to taste, and my favorite part is SUZIE|S speciality adding Filfil ou Limoun and you can find the full recipe in my Mansaf post.
I am so lucky to have my mother as my best chef, and today I hope to be your best source of recipes. Have a wonderful meal and please do give this a try to let me know what you think.
