Guess the mystery ingredient in this Turkish dessert

By: Canadian Living
While in Istanbul, I was introduced to a dish known as Tavuk göğsü, a type of Turkish pudding. [caption id="attachment_8916" align="aligncenter" width="400"] Turkish Tavuk Göğsü[/caption] Like all pudding, this version is served cold. It had the flavour of rice pudding, with a hint of cinnamon, but it was the texture that I wasn't prepared for. As I took my first bite, I noticed that within the pudding, there was something familiar I couldn't put my finger on. The texture of this ingredient was so fine, you could mistake it for silk. It was quite mild in flavour, but after a large mouthful, I noticed that I had to chew this mystery ingredient. That was the moment when the light bulb went on in my head - I was eating meat! If you guessed that the usual ingredient was chicken, you are correct! For the record, I thought the dessert was delicious and would be more than happy to eat it again.
