Chicken fatteh is a popular Middle Eastern dish that consists of layers of toasted pita bread, cooked chicken, chickpeas, yogurt sauce, and toasted pine nuts. The dish is typically seasoned with aromatic spices like cumin, coriander, and paprika and is often served with a side of tangy lemon wedges.
To prepare chicken fatteh, the pita bread is toasted until crispy and then layered at the bottom of a serving dish. Cooked chicken pieces are then added on top of the bread, followed by a layer of cooked chickpeas. The yogurt sauce, which is made from a mixture of yogurt, garlic, and tahini, is drizzled over the chickpeas and chicken.
Finally, the dish is topped with toasted pine nuts, chopped parsley, and a sprinkle of paprika for a burst of color and flavor. Chicken fatteh is typically served warm and can be enjoyed as a hearty main dish or as a flavorful appetizer.
