Easy Yugoslavian Chicken Recipe

The World Expo back in 1986 was a special time for me. I visited the pavillions of many different countries. However, my origin of (the former) Yugoslavia was very special. While I had expected to see quite of bit of their culture, I never expected to pick up a very meaningful find. It was cookbook of Yugoslav dishes.

Since I was born and raised in America, I had never known the delicacies the Yugoslavs enjoyed. While I have tried only a few recipes due to difficulty in translation from metric to the more common cups, tablespoons and teaspoons, I have found one that I thoroughly enjoy. A bit rich, but entirely decadent and very simple, it is called Chicken and Walnuts.

It is prepared with the following ingredients.

Easy Yugoslavian Chicken Recipe


Servings : 4-6

Preparation Time : 30 Min.

Cooking Time : 50 Min.

Difficulty Level : Average



  • 1 kg (2.2 lbs) of Chicken
  • 1 dl (.2 pint) Water
  • Salt, pepper, sprig of parsley
  • 500 g (19 oz) Shelled walnuts
  • 40 g (1.5 oz) Butter
  • 20 g (.75 oz) Flour
  • 50 g (2 oz) Finely grated garlic


Preparation Instructions

  • Salt and pepper the cleaned chicken.
  • Place in an oven proof dish.
  • Add a little water and cover.
  • Roast in the over for 50 minutes.
  • Cut the chicken into 8 pieces and arrange on a heatproof dish.
  • Brown butter and flour and add ground walnuts, grated garlic, and the gravy from the chicken.
  • Cook the sauce well and pour it over the chicken.
  • Put the dish in the n for 5 to 10 minutes and serve hot.
  • There was no oven temperature listed, so I believe 350 degree is safe.

I would suggest serving a small amount at first with a salad, as the walnuts make this a very rich dish.
