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.
It is highly unusual for everyone in our family to like the same dish, but everyone loved this! It was so easy to make and I substituted brown rice for half of the white, used extra lean ground beef and cooked the chicken in a non-stick pan rather than oil, so it was pretty healthy too. Meets all my criteria! Thanks for sharing.
Love this! I served with some plain yogurt on top.
There is a restaurant in Minneapolis called Emily's Lebanese Deli. It has the best Lebanese chicken with rice as well as fabulous tabbouleh. This recipe is very close and very delish! I did use 5 chicken thighs, a little less than 1 tsp. of cinnamon and about 3/4 tsp of allspice. Served it with plain yogurt. DH and friends loved it, too. Thanks, Scott!
Thank you-thank you for a great recipe! We loved it,I did make it with ground lamb and 4 Tbsp of roasted pinenuts and served it with lebanees bread and a cubumbersalad,a great meal.
Great! Wonderfull meal in less than an hour.Its the second time i cook it in 2 weeks.I used pistachios instead of pine nuts(didnt have any)but ill try w them next time.We loved it.thanks Scott!
While I thought this was YUMMY, my DH gave it a 6/10. I think I'm discovering he doesn't like cinnamon in entrees! I'll have to make it again when he's not home for dinner!! Thanks for sharing!! :O)
This is a pleasantly exotic tasting sustaining one dish meal that survives very well in the fridge for many days or reheated after being frozen.
