My chiken pie !!



Would you like to have the recipe???
One of my fellows on TFL "Azalia" asked me to share the recipe, of course, I had no problem with that , these requests from my friends make me happy , and i promised her to put the recipe next day!! And I did not, bad bad bad girl!!!
Dear fellow here you are the recipe and pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase forgive me !!! I am always tooooooo late. first of all the ingredients:-first for the dough: -3 cups all purpose flour. -2 tbls sugar. -5 tbls of powdered milk. -1and half tspn of instant yeast. -1/3 cup of oil. -pinch of salt. -cup and half of warm water. make the dough and knead it well then leave it till double or triple in volume.at the meanwhile prepare the staffing...
The ingredients:- -half a kilo of chiken fillet"breast meat". -vegetables "onions, potatoes, carrots, green, yellow and red pepper. -salt and pepper. Ah I added to the dough, 2 tbls of dried origano.
for topping :-250 gr. of cream - 4 tbls mayo. -1 tspn of mustard. -5 tbls of cream cheese. I stir fried the chicken after cutting it into strips,in a pan over high heat with a tbls of butter and a little of olive oil. I added gradually the vegetables in this order, carrots, potatoes, I forgot to tell you about green beans, then onions , and the pepper. I adjusted the taste and after finishing I added a good amount of green parsley. Let the staffing cool . After the fermentation of the dough , start working.I divided the dough to 1/3 and 2/3 the 2/3 for the ground of the pie , I used a tart mould with removable bottom, and then pour the staffing, then mixing the topping and spreading it over the staffing..I rolled the remaining dough and shaped it using a special roll and put it on the top of my pie , made an egg wash , let the pie for 20 minutes then baked it!!

I am of Lebanese decent. (Hebrew, Beirut)
47 years old now and forgetting but as a child I was fluent in Arabic.
Much of my cooking is still from what I was taught long ago.
Yes I always mean Shalom as the most pure shared meaning of God's Peace.
  Shalom,

So ,let me say that we are relatives, we love lebanon and lebanese people are the cutest people I ever met, Try to remember some of your arabic words ,it is nice to find someone on the forum who can speak a little bit of arabic.


but you know Mark that "laban"in lebanese current language means "yoghurt" and "laban" is in ours means "milk"which is "halib"in libanese.


God bless you mark , I really wish you all the best .


Have a nice day,Mark.


Thank you for your nice words.

...Thank you.
Yes as a child I made fresh Laban many times and as you know we always ejoyed it with fresh bread, Khobaz, Khobaz wa Fatayer. Mmmmmm

As you probably know our families split with the wars in Lebanon, some came to Detroit the rest to parts of Brazil.
I do have some family from Egypt, Michaels and Abraham.
Sito was Julia Michaels, the most kind woman I have ever known and a baker her entire life.

Always know that I have much respect for you.
 Shalom,
    Mark
