Chicken With Grilled Onions & Sumac
This recipe is easy to prepare and you can prepare the chicken a day in advance if you want too. You can also bake it a couple of hours before your guests arrive. It will still have the flaky crust dough with good texture and you’ll impress your guests with little effort!
3 pounds of chicken breasts cooked with spices and shredded. 3 Large onions diced seasoned and grilled.
2 eggs for brushing the top of the dough
3 tea spoons of sumac seasoning
1 package of puff pastry dough (or you can make your own dough) about 12 large pieces
A juice of one lemon
4 table spoons of olive oil
Salt to taste
1 tea spoon paprika if you like it spicy you can use hot paprika
½ tea spoon black pepper.
Pickles or peppers for garnish
Combine chopped onions & ½ of the seasoning over the olive oil
Caramelize the onions
Cook the chicken with seasoned water ( I usually cook chicken for most recipes with a couple of Bay leaves, salt , pepper, dash of hot peppers & ½ onions)
Shred all the chicken, add the seasoning
Combine chicken with onions
Mix & Cook for about 5 minutes
Place chicken on the dough
Fold to any shape you prefer
Press tight so chicken stays in
Brush with eggs
I like to be generous with the eggs on top to give it beautiful golden color
Pre -heat oven to 375 Fahrenheit.
Bake about 20 minutes, or until golden color.
Garnish with pickles or peppers. Enjoy!!
You can also use flour tortilla if you don’t wish to use dough or if you don’t have it. Use same exact recipe, place on a tortilla and roll like a small burritos, don’t forget to brush the top with eggs, Bake & enjoy.
