I made this for my book club lunch group when we met to discuss "And the Mountain Echoed". It was a hit! Absolutely delicious and so pretty on the table. I used all boneless chicken thighs and it was perfect that way. Also, as in other recipes I've seen for this dish online, I used a pressure cooker to cut the time way down when you cook the onions and chicken at the beginning-15 minutes instead of an hour.
Yummy! My favorite part was the rice! It absorbed all of the flavors and was just delicious. I loved the carrot strips, too. It's a somewhat involved recipe, but worth it. The flavors are well-developed. Thank you!
Delicious! I'm not sure if *I* messed up or if it's normal but after simmering the chicken, when I tried to fry it, it totally fell apart. so I just deboned it & added it to the rice in bits. the kids REALLY loved this. I used the extra chicken stock to make cream of chicken & wild rice soup. ;) I'll definitely make this again!! Thank you! Made for NA/ME Tag.
Most delicious! Instead of the carrot which I can't eat I used left over cooked yam (real African yam, not sweet potato). Otherwise made as suggested - will make this again! Thanks for posting. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010.
