      Lebanese chicken with rice is probably one of the most traditional Lebanese dishes. This recipe is very authentic and extremely flavorful. I made double the quantity identified in the recipe and made a side of roasted potatoes, which were boiled first in chicken broth and cinnamon. I served this along side plain yogurt and pickles. An absolute hit!

      This was good. I had to make due with the ingredients I had on hand, which meant no chicken or pine nuts. The spices of this dish taste better at room temperature than hot. I think the pine nuts I was missing would have added another layer of much needed texture, but I also think it needs another flavor to brighten the overall taste..maybe some fresh mint? Overall, great dish with some tweaking.

      This was delicious, easy to prepare, and easy to clean up. I loved that it could all be done in one pot. The chicken was tender and the rice was so tasty and spiced just right. I can't wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow and my not-so-adventurous husband loved it as well. I sliced fresh cucumber as our veggie and the two went really well together.
