Arabic stuffed chicken (Dajaj Mahshi)

 

Stuffed chicken is a famous dish in many Arab countries. It is usually served at parties.

There are many Arabic recipes for making stuffed chicken, but the most famous and delicious two recipes are the Egyptian recipe and the Lebanese recipe.

The Lebanese recipe is distinguished from the Egyptian recipe because in the Lebanese recipe, the chicken is often large in size, and the stuffing is inside the body of the chicken.

In the Egyptian recipe, the chickens are often small, and the stuffing is under the skin of the chicken in addition to the internal stuffing.

 

As for the stuffing itself.

The stuffing in the Egyptian way is by using Egyptian rice with the addition of chicken livers and gizzards.

As for the Lebanese way, it is using basmati rice and adds ground beef.

 

Stuffed chicken is served with molokhia and Salata Baladi (Green Salad), as well as tahini sauce or Baba Ghanoush

 

In this recipe, I will share with you the delicious Lebanese recipe, and I will share the Egyptian recipe with you later.
