Satsivi Recipe
Richer than I like my dishes to be, but well worth it for an occasional splurge. It is served cold, with the thick sauce served almost as a side dish with the chicken. My special nod to the Russian part of my family, done the streamlined way: who knew a Moroccan girl could cook Georgian? You bet I can!
Satsivi Recipe
8 servings chicken (drumsticks, thighs, half breasts: 16 pieces in all)
2 large onions, sliced very thin
6 large cloves garlic, minced
2 good pinches saffron
1 teaspoon turmeric
2 cups water
1½ cups ground walnuts
¼ cup unfiltered apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon each: paprika, cinnamon, ground coriander
1–2 good pinches cayenne


Bring the chicken, onions, garlic, saffron, turmeric, and water to a boil. Reduce to medium and cook, covered, for 1 hour. Remove the chicken to a platter with a slotted spoon. Stir the walnuts, vinegar, and spices into the pot, and cook another 10 minutes until the sauce thickens. Pour over the chicken. Chill the dish before serving.

    • Lévana, on Said:

      Ha, I would say no. Walnuts are what gives the sauce its distinctive and authentic flavor. So I would leave it as is.

    Hey Levana,
    What are the green leafy ingredients shown in the photo of the Satsivi dish? I don’t see such an ingredient in the recipe.
    Thanks, Robyn
