You only need a little chicken to make this mouthwatering pilaff, so it is the perfect dish to use up leftovers from a roast.
For a vegetarian version, leave out the chicken and increase the amount of toasted, flaked almonds to 75g. Stir in 50g seedless raisins or chopped, dried apricots when adding the stock.
Lovely pilaff. I made it as stated but next time I will add a few raisins also. - 20 Oct 2010
This was delicous. I didnt have ginger, coriander or almonds. I substituted the almonds for cashew nuts & just left teh others out; this worked really well. I only used 1/2 tsp of cinnamon as I find it very strong. It worked out delicous. Also I had to add more stock than the recipe called for as all the water had gone but the rice wasnt cooked. All in all it was delicous, I will definitely be making it again. - 08 Aug 2008
This was phenomenal. I took out the red pepper, and added chopped carrots and peas. Instead of flaked almonds I threw in some chopped cashews. I've made it twice for myself, and once for my dad, and I'm making it again tonight. If you still need me to say it, TRY THIS RECIPE! - 01 Dec 2012
