Chicken Kabse Recipe
Kabsa, Kabse, Kabseh (Arabic: كبسة kabsah) is a family of mixed rice dishes that are served mostly in Jordan and Saudi Arabia — where it is commonly regarded as a national dish in Saudi Arabia.

In places like Jordan, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Iraq and Kuwait the dish is popularly known as machbūs (Arabic: مكبوس), but is served mostly in the same way.
This dish is usually served in parties and weddings.
