Chicken Featured Rice

One Pot Chicken Biryani

Yum

I’ve always wanted to make chicken biryani. So when I was flipping through a gluten-free cookbook and saw it, I sprung into action. Rummaged through my pantry and found all the ingredients I need! Lucky me!

I use Pacific foods organic free-range chicken broth which is gluten-free and perfect for this recipe. You can use any chicken broth if you are not planning to make a gf version. 

It’s really simple to make if you have all the dry ingredients that are. Although, you can easily purchase all the spices from supermarkets or wet markets. Since it is a one pot, cleaning up is a breeze. Use a ziplock bag to marinate the chicken the night before for maximum flavour. If you love warm spices and deep flavours, you will enjoy this recipe.
