Poultry with Melon - meat

Posted by : Lita Lotzkar

  Melon Ba'al Canaf - "Melon with Wings"
  Yield: 6 servings

  3 sm  Cantaloupes
  1/3 c Oil
  3 c   Raw chicken or turkey meat chopped
  1 ts  Salt
  2 c   Green onions; chopped
  1/3 c Parsley; chopped
  1/4 c Fresh lemon juice
  2 c   Cooked rice

  Cut each melon in half; remove seeds.  Scoop out pulp and reserve.
  Heat oil in a skillet and saute chicken or turkey.  Add salt and
  continue to saute until poultry is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
  Blend in green onions, parsley and lemon juice; continue cooking
  until onions are soft. Remove from flame and cool.

  Add rice to cooled chicken mixture; stuff melon cavities.  Chop up 1
  cup of reserved melon pulp and place on top.  Put stuffed melons into
  an ovenproof dish; bake at 350 F. for 20 minutes.  Serve hot.

  The authors write: "Melon Baal Canaf is a dish that is said to
  disappear as soon as it is placed on the table, as though it had
  wings."
