Bosnian chefs hope to break a Guinness World Record for the biggest chicken stew in the world by cooking up the meal for 14,000 people.

Some 100 cooks and volunteers used 1,000kg of chicken and about 300kg of vegetables to prepare the traditional dish, known as Bey's soup, in the centre of Sarajevo.

It took eight hours to cook in an enormous pot.

Judges are sending details of the event to Guinness officials for verification.

Part of the dish was served to hundreds of residents who gathered to watch the spectacle.

Organisers said the rest will be distributed to soup kitchens, which tend to thousands of people in the country where close to a fifth of the population lives below the poverty line.
