Today’s dish is a grilled chicken sandwich with light chunky hummus.

طبق اليوم هو ساندويتش الدجاج المشوي مع حمص قليل السعرات



  1. Take half a chicken breast and either thinly slice it or butterfly it. Sprinkle both sides with salt, pepper and paprika then grill it without oil. Make sure you do not flip it until it’s cooked properly because it will stick and break if it’s not cooked
  2. Take around 5 tablespoons of chickpeas and smash it using a fork with 2 tablespoons of yogurt, 1 teaspoon of sesame paste, a squeeze of lemon, salt, pepper and paprika. You can add garlic if you want but i didn’t. (um3azoz, one of my instagram buddies suggested adding yogurt for a lighter hummus version)
  3. All you need is to assemble the sandwich; A thick layer of hummus, then the chicken breast (cut into stripes), then shredded carrots and rocca leaves. I used 100% organic rye bread from alraha stone mill.



  1. اول شي ناخذ نص صدر دياية و نقصها شرايح ضعيفة. نرش فوقها ملح و فلفل اسود و بابريكا و نشويها بدون دهن. لا تقلبونها الا لمى تستوي لأن راح تلزق
  2. حق الحمص: هرسوا ٥ ملاعق كبيرة نخي مع ملعقتين روب و ملعقة صغيرة هردة (طحينة) مع عصرة ليمونة و ملح و فلفل اسود و بابريكا. تقدرون تضيفون ثوم اذا تبون بس انا ما حطيت ثوم
  3. و الحين سووا الساندويتش: طبقة كبيرة من الحمص، و فوقها الدياي بس نقصصه شرايح اول و بعدين جزر مبشور و جرجير

استخدمت خبز الجاودر من الرحى اللي بالقادسية.

و بالعافية.



Bon appetit!

Moist Roasted Lemon Chicken


Happy Ramadan!

Today’s recipe is very simple and DELICIOUS. The first time I tried it was in June and we just couldn’t get enough of it. It’s pretty simple too! all you need to do is to follow up the recipe below:




  1. A whole chicken, cleaned, and rubbed with turmeric and flour.
  2. Lemon slices
  3. A whole potato cut in cubes
  4. salt and pepper
  5. Garlic slices
  6. Butter (optional)



  1. Rub the chicken with a tiny knob of butter or olive oil from the inside and the outside and sprinkle some salt and peppet
  2. Stuff the chicken with the potato cubes, lemon slices and garlic. you can add lemon juice if you want as well.
  3. Use a roasting bag this time. it will keep the chicken moist and delicious. Close the bag tightly and put it in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour. (Heat: 175-180 C in a preheated oven)



and serve it while its still hot :)

You can substitute the lemon slices with Orange slices, add more herbs if you want, or add carrots for a sugary flavor.






Bon Appetit!

Roasted Stuffed Turkey Breast Recipe


  1. 1 Boneless Turkey Breast
  2. 2 Zucchini
  3. 1 Parsnip
  4. 1 Medium Onions
  5. 1-2 TBS Olive oil
  6. Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Chili Flakes
  7. 4-5 TBS Philadelphia Herb Cheese.


  1. I used butter ball’s turkey breast. it comes with a ready made gravy, and boneless turkey breast ready to be used. the first thing you need to do is to flatten the breast, either by butterflying the thick parts or hammering them. before that, the turkey has to be thawed properly in the fridge.
  2. In a pan, saute the onions and parsnips, add the spices and when the parsnips soften, add the zucchini.
  3. Take the mixture out of the pan and mix the herb cheese.
  4. Place the turkey on the table, just like the Nori sheets for sushi, Place the stuffings in the middle and roll it.
  5. Wrap the turkey with string so that everything stays in it’s place when being baked.
  6. Baking time: I’ll add this as soon as I’m home, But I remember having it on high heat for around 15 minutes then lowering it to 185 for an hour.

Bon appetit!
