Commonly eaten in the Arab World, easy!



  • 2 Medium Onions
  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic
  • Chicken Wings or Chicken Breast (can use as much chicken as you want, depending on how many people are going to eat!)
  • 2tbsp Oil
  • 2tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 medium sized potatoes
  • Handful of fresh basil or parsley
  • Chilli Powder
  • Tumeric powder
  • Pasta tubes or pasta shells
  • Salt and Black Pepper
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Can of chickpeas


Chop onions into cubes

Peel potatoes and cut each in half

Heat the oil in a large pan

Add the onions and fry until soft, stir regularly

Add the chicken and fry for 4 minutes, until white.

Next, add the potatoes and mix thoroughly

Chop the garlic into small cubes and add to the pan.

Add the tomato puree and stir the mixture thoroughly until the ingredients are covered in the tomato puree.

Measure out a quarter of a tsp of chilli powder and a tsp of tumeric powder and add to the pan. Again, mix everything in.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Boil the kettle and add the boiled water so it covers two-thirds of the pan.

Cover and simmer until the chicken and potatoes are cooked thoroughly.

Once everything is cooked, add 3 handfuls of pasta to the pan. Make sure there isnt too much pasta in the pan or it will stick together.

Leaing the pan lid off, boil until pasta is cooked and the water should have started to reduce,

Add chickpeas and the basil/parsely and cook for a further 5 minutes.

Serve with fresh, warm baguette and a squeeze of lemon on each plate.
