  • Vegetable oil-2 tbsp.
  • Medium onion (finely chopped)-1
  • Garlic cloves (minced)-1 tbsp.
  • Ground chicken- 2 lbs (900 g)
  • Cumin powder– 1 tsp.
  • Paprika-1 tsp.
  • Onion powder- 1 tsp.
  • Mushrooms ( quartered)- 0.5 lbs (250 g)
  • Salt- 1/2 tsp. or to taste
  • Celery ( diced)-1 cup
  • Baby potatoes ( quartered)- 5 cups
  • Chicken stock/ broth- 6 cups
  • Black pepper- 1/2 tsp.
  • Bay leaf-2
  • Cream- 1 cup
  • Cornstarch-2 tbsp.
  • Baby spinach- 4 cup


  • In a large 11-inch ( 28 cm) casserole  pot heat vegetable oil. Add the chopped onion and saute until almost browned. Then add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  • Add the ground chicken, season with cumin powder, paprika and onion powder. Mix well and cook over medium high heat until chicken nicely browned, about 5 minutes. It won’t be completely cooked.  Add the mushrooms,  season with salt and pepper and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Finally, add the celery, baby potatoes, chicken stock and bay leaves. Cover and cook until potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes.
  • Whisk  cornstarch and cream and pour the mixture  into the pot. Bring to a boil and allow to thicken (alternatively you can smash a few potatoes with a fork to thicken). Adjust salt and pepper to your liking.
  • Add the baby spinach, cover with the lid and turn down the heat.
  • Serve with naan bread, scallion pancakes or gozleme.
