Afghan Chicken Biryani (Aromatic Lemon Chicken & Basmati Rice Pilaf)
Biryani is an amazing mixed-rice dish with rich origins and a variety of regional variations. Zainab gives this dish her own personal twist, creating something truly fun and delicious. She starts by marinating large cuts of chicken in rich yogurt and a medley of spices, including turmeric, cinnamon, and cardamom. As the chicken is slow-cooked to create a tender and juicy texture, extra long grain basmati rice is steamed in a heavenly spice blend. To complete the dish, the chicken is placed atop the rice for a final flash steam and a fresh slice of lemon is squeezed over the top. The end result is a fantastic dish with tangy chicken, fluffy rice, and perfectly balanced spices. Chef Zainab's biryani is truly a party for your mouth!
