Chicken Sharkaseya

Chicken Sharkaseya recipe, an Egyptian dish is a creamy delight that is loved by all. Chicken breasts are gently simmered in a delicious walnut sauce and served on a bed of rice.


  • 5 slices white toast, crust removed
  • 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup whole walnuts
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cubes MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 kg boneless chicken breasts, skin removed
  • 2 large onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup low-fat cream
  • 2 cups short-grain rice, cooked

How to Prepare

  1. Start by preparing the sauce.
  2. In a food processor, add bread, garlic and walnuts. Blend till it reaches a fine texture.
  3. Sauté the chicken breasts with onions until golden on all sides. Add MAGGI® Chicken Bouillon, pour water and leave it until tender.
  4. Drain and keep the broth to use it for the sauce.
  5. In a cooking pan, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and add the bread-walnut mixture, and season it with a pinch of nutmeg.
  6. Sauté until the mixture starts to turn lightly golden. Pour in 2½ cups of the broth and whisk to make sure the sauce is very smooth. Season with pepper.
  7. Add the cream. Cook over very low heat for a few minutes.
  8. To assemble the dish, place the cooked rice in a dish. Ladle some of the sauce over the rice and top with chicken.
  9. Garnish the Chicken Sharkaseya with roughly chopped walnuts for more texture and a lovely nutty flavour.
