This is a wonderful recipe. I also add seven spices and cardamon which adds a lot of flavor to the sauce. Thanks Frau Frau.
Astonishingly delicious dish for such an easy recipe with comparably few ingredients! I didn't add any spices except for salt and pepper, and I really enjoyed the flavours on their own. Thanks for sharing :)
Made for Visit Jordan / Kuwait - N*A*M*E forum
DH, DD (4 years old) and I enjoyed this traditional tasting dish. Like another reviewer I added a bit of spice, not a lot. I used my own, Baharat Aka Middle East Mixed Spices - the Real Mix in the stock and rice/yogurt sauce plus a few bruised cardamom pods in the sauce. I cooked the chicken in the water as you have to be very careful not to over heat the yogurt mixture or it will separate. I used some Arabic yogurt and Balkan yogurt, whole blanched almonds, flat leaf parsley, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper (no where does it say to add it), white Basmati rice I soaked and cooked with the chicken stock from simmering and some canola oil, plus the rest of the ingredients. I might make this again when I have odds and ends of chicken pieces to use up. Made for Let's go to Jordan & Kuwait this August 2012! (Was for Jordan)
we spent a year in jordan, loved this dish, i knew i couldn't get some of the ingredients here and wasn't sure how to recreate it. i am going to try this, very excited! thanks.
