Circassian chicken (Turkish: Çerkes tavuğu, Adyghe: Jed de ships sch'etu) is a dish of shredded boiled chicken served under or in a rich paste made with crushed walnuts, and stock thickened with stale bread.[1] Circassian Chicken is a classic Circassian dish, adopted by the Imperial Ottoman cuisine.[2] Although it was typically served as a main course, it became popular as an appetizer, or meze. Being an Imperial-era dish, it can also be found in other cuisines of the Eastern Mediterranean.[3] A similar walnut sauce and a chicken dish made with this sauce is known as satsivi in Georgian cuisine.
