Chicken Sambousek is a savory Middle Eastern pastry that is typically served as an appetizer or snack. It is made from a crispy pastry shell that is filled with a delicious mixture of ground chicken, onions, and spices.
To make the filling, ground chicken is sautéed with onions, garlic, and a blend of Middle Eastern spices such as cumin, coriander, and allspice. The mixture is then cooled and stuffed into a small pastry shell, which is folded into a triangular shape and fried until golden brown and crispy.
The pastry shell is made from a simple dough that is rolled out thinly and cut into circles. The filling is then placed in the center of each circle, and the edges are folded over to create the triangular shape. The sambousek can be served hot, garnished with fresh herbs or a squeeze of lemon juice, or at room temperature as a snack or appetizer.
