Musakhkhan- Chicken With Flat Bread and Sumac- مسخن فلسطيني
This is a very traditional Palestinian recipe with few simple ingredients, it is called Musakhkhan, or Msakhkhan which in Arabic means "Heated".
This recipes is prepared in the cities and villages where olive grows. During the harvest time in Oct/Nov freshly squeezed olive oil is widely available and it is used in preparing this delicious meal. Fresh flat bread is baked in the traditional ground ovens using wood fire. To cook this recipe as traditional and authentic as you can you need to use the right and best ingredients, especially good olive oil, but I have cooked it before using light olive oil and it came out ok but not as intense in flavors.
No matter how you cook it, it comes out delicious. Enjoy this new cooking adventure
