Shuh cutlets – simplicity and taste in one

Shuh Shuh cutlets are tasty chicken pieces in an aromatic breadcrumb coating with garlic, paprika, and potato starch. Although their name's origin is unclear, there are two popular theories. One suggests that the name may come from Asian cuisine, where potato starch and seasonings such as garlic and paprika are commonly used for breading dishes. The other humorous theory says that these cutlets can be prepared "shuh," which means very quickly. Regardless of which theory is closer to the truth, one thing is sure – their preparation takes only a few moments.


  • 2 chicken breasts (about 630 grams),
  • 4 tablespoons potato starch,
  • 3 egg yolks,
  • 3 tablespoons oil (+ extra for frying),
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic,
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt,
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika,
  • salt and pepper to taste.

Preparing Shuh cutlets is extremely simple. Cut the chicken breasts into smaller pieces, mix them with the prepared breadcrumb coating and fry them in hot oil. The cutlets can be refrigerated for 30 minutes before frying, enhancing their taste and aroma.

The ready cutlets are best served hot to retain their crispiness. For an additional flavour effect, they can be sprinkled with fresh chives or parsley.
