Beshbarmak with Chicken (the healthy way)

Traditionally, beshbarmak is made from horse meat, lamb and beef. But not everyone tolerates these types of meat, so they replace them with chicken. I prefer chicken meat because with it beshbarmak is not only tasty but also quickly cooked. This dish is sure to serve the broth in a separate bowl.
