Fried Turkish Style Chicken

Sharing is caring!

In our household we love food and especially trying different ethnic foods. As a parent I find it very important to expand your children’s palates, let them experience their senses and it’s okay if they don’t like it as long as they gave it a try!

We recently went to the local school’s Multicultural Events and they were a lot of fun, although I do wish I was able to spend more time learning and experiencing the different cultures. We tried a traditional Turkish salad and it was amazing, I just knew I had to make a Turkish themed dinner. We made Kisir Salad and this Turkish Chicken, which both dishes were very easy to make and yummy.

This Turkish chicken was much easier to make then I thought, it taste great and had only a little spice to it. Make it on the stove top like I did by frying it or you could make them on the barbecue as kebabs.

Fried Turkish Style Chicken

Grab a small bowl and combine Greek yogurt, garlic, tomato paste, vegetable oil, lemon juice, salt, ground cumin, paprika, ground cinnamon, black pepper, cayenne and stir to combine.

Cut the chicken up into 4 inch pieces and place into a container or a ziplock bag. Pour in the small bowl of mix that you just prepared. Coat the chicken evenly and place in the fridge. Marinate in the fridge for 1-8 hours.

After it’s done marinading, pull it out of the fridge. In a large frying pan over medium heat, spray your pan with cooking spray.
When the pan is warm, place your chicken and fry until thoroughly cooked about 20-30 minutes, turning every couple minutes.
Serve warm with your favorite side dishes. We ate our chicken with kisir salad wrapped in romaine lettuce.

There are so many things I'm thankful for and one of those is the amount of nature areas Washington state has to offer. I'm so thankful we were able to get out and walk Nisqually Wildlife Perserve before the "Stay Home, stay healthy" order the Gov. placed. It was wonderful to get out one last time, this staying home is tough and I don't know how we're going to manage?!! #pnw #nature #optoutside #stayhome #momlife #sendwine

But we got to play at the local beach while practicing #socialdistancing it was wonderful! 🌻And we found a beautiful painted rock, thank you to who ever hid it!

What are you going to do with your child if homeschooling isn't cut out for them or your family? Take a deep breath, exhale and relax. It'll be okay! Everyone's health and wellness is much more important at this time than academics. I've got a list of activities if you'd like some structure in your lives though. Check it out on my blog.

Glad we were able to squeeze in one more trip out into the community and zoo before things start shutting down. Friday Piper and I made an impromptu visit to Pt defiance zoo! It was great minus the cold/rain; there was only a couple other people, animals were active, didnt need to touch anything. Now schools are out for 6 weeks and we plan on quarantining ourselves at home for most of that time, except to get out into nature.
