Armi do gayna resembles pollo al chilindrón from Rioja and Navarre in Spain, the regions famous for peppers. But the addition of allspice is a decidedly Turkish one. I also like a bit of hot pepper here—a subtle hint of heat in the background. Suzy David calls this gaina kon zarzavat and adds dill for a leafy touch. Serve with rice and pass lemon wedges to brighten the taste.
