Chicken Pie - "Burek from Sarajevo"

Ingredients:
  • 1 smaller chicken or hen
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup of milk milk
  • 1/4 cup of butterfat (oil or margarine)
  • 3/4 lbs. dough layers for the pie
  • butter fat or oil for greasing and sprinkling
  • 1/2 thick yogurt or sour cream
Wash chicken or hen well, put up to cook in warm water, bring to boil salt and simmer. Sift sour, mix well egg and milk. Pour the mixture over flour and knead well with fingers to get small crumbs the so called "tirit". Fry tirit quickly in heated butter or oil. Remove cooked chicken meat from bones, mince it and add salt and pepper as needed. Grease a tepsya (baking pan) with oil or butterfat, place a dough layer in it and sprinkle it with with oil or melted butterfat. Place a few more dough layers over the same manner and cover the last with half of the tirit and chicken meat. Then place some more dough layers over, sprinkling them with fat every time, add the rest of tirit and meat, pour over with two dough layers and sprinkle with butterfat oil. Bake in the oven preheated to 175-200 C for about 35-40 min, until nicely brown. When "Burek" is nearly done, cut it into squares, pour chicken soup over it and finish baking. While still warm, pour over it whipped thick yogurt or sour cream, put it back into the oven (leave it slightly open) and let it stand like that for a while. The well known Turkish 17th century chronicler, Evliya Tchelebia mentions this chicken "burek" as a "renewed dish" a specialty of Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina).
