Author: Amira

Ingredients

  • 2 lb ground chicken.
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese.
  • 3 garlic cloves - crushed.
  • 1 small yellow onion- chopped.
  • 2 Tablespoon flour.
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil.
  • 1 teaspoon salt - or to your taste.
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder.
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika.
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder.
  • 1/4 cup of green olives.
  • 4 cardamom pods and 2 bay leaves.

Instructions

  • Over medium heat, saute onion in olive oil until fragrant, tun off the heat and add the minced garlic stir for 30 seconds while heat is turned off.
  • In a bowl, combine ground chicken, spices, onion and garlic and mix well.
  • In your food processor mix the cream cheese with part of the ground chicken mixture, then add to the whole patch of ground chicken and combine well.
  • Add the flour and mix well. Using parchment paper, spread the ground meat mixture, add olive oil in the middle then roll to form a log, wrap in another piece of foil, twisting ends to secure.
  • In a deep pot over high heat, add water - enough to cover the log- along with cardamom pods and bay leaved, then bring to a boil.
  • When water boils, add the chicken roll and reduce heat to medium. Let it cook until done, will take about 45 minutes.
  • Take the log out of water, let it cool and unwrap.
  • When the log is cooled completely, slice and serve.
  • Store leftovers in a container in the fridge, you can serve cold or re-heat and serve.
  • Great for sandwiches and side dished.
  • Enjoy!!
