Pan fried chicken stuffed with cheese and pistachio nuts

This crazy, ramshackle, friendly city of Istanbul, is a city that lives to eat. The Take-Aways, the street vendors, the restaurants all provide exquisite, tasty interesting food.


  • Beaten chicken breast (like thin escallop)
  • Pistachio nuts
  • Cashew nuts
  • Orange segments
  • Orange juice
  • Yellow cheese (any cheese that will melt nicely)
  • Flour
  • Oil
  • Turkish Raki
  • Loads of butter

Fill the chicken breast with pistachio nuts, fresh mint and a thin slice of cheese.
Roll checkin (just like a chicken kiev) and fix it with a little wooden skewer. Roll it in flour and place in pre heated oiled pan.
Flambe the chicken with the Raki, add Cashew nuts and fry it a little bit. Add the orange segments and the orange juice and let it simmer gently for 10 minutes.
Take out the chicken pieces, add the butter and whisk it into the sauce.
