About this recipe: An Arabic recipe with spiced chicken cooked with rice allowing the rice to absorb the rich flavours. Great with Greek yoghurt! It is very popular in the Middle East, and has become a family favourite! It's really simple, though my steps may seem a little bit in depth, it gets easier once you've made it a few times!
You can use beef instead of chicken, just cook the meat until its fully cooked. The rest of the cooking remains the same. Also, this recipe is best when you use fresh tomatoes instead of trying to substitute with tinned tomatoes.
You can also experiment with this, try adding some dried mint etc.
Great with yoghurt, and a fresh cut salad.
The prep time varies depending if you put each ingredient into its own separate bowl, so with time this becomes easier to prepare.
Had to tweak the recipe abit because I coulded get the crushed dried lemon anywere, nobody seemed to have heard of it so I bought a pot of spices that had lemon in it and other med spices in it, anyway the dish turned out lovely, and everybody polished it off, so thanks - 24 Sep 2014
