Qoursan With Chicken And Vegetables Recipe | MAGGI® Arabia

Qoursan with Chicken and Vegetables

This dish is a Saudi Arabian speciality. Qursan is made of dried thin wheat loafs, soaked in a tangy tomato-based gravy and cooked to perfection.


  • 500g chicken breast, cut into small cubes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium bell pepper, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 liter hot water
  • 2 cubes MAGGI® Chicken Stock with Natural Herbs
  • 2 medium carrots, cubed
  • 1 large potato, cubed
  • 4 medium zucchinis, cut into cubes
  • 18 pieces lasagna sheets

How to Prepare

  1. In a medium pot, sauté chicken, onions, bell peppers in oil until onions are soft and chicken is slightly brown. Add tomato paste and sauté for an additional 1-2 mins.
  2. Add water, and crumble MAGGI® Chicken Stock with Natural Herbs over the broth. Add potato and carrots and simmer over medium heat for 30 mins until vegetables are tender.
  3. Place 6 lasagna sheets on the bottom of a deep baking dish. Arrange zucchini pieces over and pour some of the prepared broth on top. Layer another 6 sheets of pasta over zucchinis and spoon the chicken and cooked vegetables on top, reserving some of the broth. Place the last 6 pasta sheets over the chicken and vegetables and cover with remaining chicken broth.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 30 mins at 175°C or until the pasta is soft and some of the sauce has been absorbed. Carefully remove and serve along with salad or spicy tomato salsa.
