Yogurtlu Basti update

Last night, by request, I made Yogurtlu Basti, which seems to have become something of a favorite around here. In fact, it's popular enough that it surprised me to discover that there was a way to make it even better. Because I was busy making couscous at the time, I ended up letting the chicken and onions braise a bit longer, indeed there was the barest amount of water left in the bottom of the pan. The onions were browned and had started to roast so when I swirled in the yogurt sauce it came out darker and with a more complex flavor. From the reaction, this is apparently the way I'll be making it from now on.

I guess it was just one of those fortunate kitchen "accidents". *smile* The more roasted onions definitely improved the flavor.
