Recipe Description:

Sometimes avoiding food waste is the best way to make a delicious discovery— that’s how cooks from the Middle East must have felt when they first came up with the concept of fattet, a type of dish that uses yesterday’s flatbread, often toasted, as the flavour base for today’s delicacies. Some fattet are little more than jazzed-up salads, but Fattet djaj is perhaps the most full-on fattet of all, a Syrian favourite that involves slathering the toasted pita in layers of rice, chicken, and a yoghurt-tahini sauce. When brought to the table, it’s an impressive cornucopia of ingredients— no-one will suspect just how simple it was to make!
