How should I serve this dish?

Somebody is coming over for dinner tomorrow. I found a Turkish "lamb stew with chickpeas" recipe. But I don't know how to serve this, since the lamb has bones. Should I take out the lamb (with bones), and serve it on a separate plate?

On this site is an image of the dish: portakal aŸacı: etli nohut (yahni)

Thanks in advance.....

That looks really delicious! I think you can serve the lamb the way it is (with bones). It should be tender enough to eat easily...you could bone it first, but you would lose the flavor from the bones cooking.

Thanks MexicoKaren, I think I wasn't clear. I mean can I leave the lamb (with bones) in the dish? How do you eat this when the lamb with bones floats in the chickpea stew? I hope it doesn't become a mess. LOL, I'm such an amateur..

I'd remove the lamb from the stew, cut it into serving-sized pieces, discard the bones, and return the meat to the bowl with the chickpeas.

Yep, I think Scotch has the best answer. I was thinking of chicken stews, where full pieces of chicken are included, bones and all. I'm not familiar with the cut of lamb you are using, so I guess it would be safer to do as Scotch recommends. At any rate, it looks really tasty, so enjoy!

Perhaps you could translate the recipe into English for those of us who don't understand Turkish.

It depends who you are serving it too. I would be happy serving the dish with bones in it. Just don't mind when people remove the bones. It is probably worth providing a dish for discarded bones.
