Tastes nice, would probably have put a bit more spice in it just to make it more exciting but it tastes great anyway. Only thing is the rice came out a bit sticky/starchy, I dunno if that was just me not using enough water or not cooking it long enough. Would definitely make it again with some more spice and maybe added vegetables.
Great chicken and rice pilaf recipe!!! I love pine nuts, so when I saw this offered, I knew I wanted to tag it. I had a boneless/skinless chicken thigh in the freezer, but at the last minute, I had to switch to using a boneless/skinless chicken breast as the thigh had gotten freezer burned. I cut this back to serve one (which for me, it would serve me at least twice, so economical too) and omitted the sultans as I am not a fan of sweet fruit with my meats. The other change I made was to coat the chicken pieces in some seasoned flour before browning, hoping to keep it moist during baking, and it was a success. I loved the flavor from the tumeric and red onion and really loved the crunch of the toasted pine nuts. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe Noo!!! Made for PRMR Tag Game.
This is a very delicious chicken and rice dish. I love the flavor and color that the turmeric provides and the use of the red onion. I did use bone-in chicken thighs and I left the skin on during the cooking process to add more flavor. Served this dish with a side salad and it made a perfect meal for tonight. Made for PRMR, September, 2013.
Very easily prepared, I did preheat the stove but realised this was just as quickly prepared on the stovetop. I omitted the sultanas, since I don't care for them, I did consider adding sauteed zucchini and although I didn't, I do think this, or similar, would be a good addition. I served this with a steamed peas and corn mix, we all very much enjoyed it and it certainly is a perfect meal to make when you don't have much time r dont feel much like cooking! Any veg dish would accompany it well. Thanks Noo, made for PRMR tag game
I really loved this! I wanted something "basic" tonight, but instead I got something spectacular! What a wonderful surprise for a 30 minute meal! I just wish pine nuts were cheaper here!!! I'll definitely keep this recipe...loved the raisins. The portions are generous....I served with a salad and cut the recipe in half, and I think half would generously serve 3. But there is nothing wrong with generous portions....if DS was home, there would be nothing left! Made for PRMR....thanks for sharing!
Have no idea (& didn't care!) about howmuch 3 ounces of the raisins were, but just added probably close to 1 cup ~ What the heck, I LOVE 'EM! Went with the recipe the rest of the way, though & we had a great main course for our supper! A very nice change from all the chicken breasts I prepare! A very nice keeper of a recipe!

Tasty and easy, although more colorful accents could be added. Sorry I did not have cilantro on hand for garnish, but next time I will accent with steamed broccoli. This is a pilaf for mushroom haters; I'll probably add some next time. My Le Creuset pot came in handy for this recipe. Thank you for sharing, Noo! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
Weeelllllll... I ummm forgot to preheat the oven so I cooked it stovetop - brought it to a boil, capped it & turned the heat to low for 20 minutes. It came out perfectly. AND, here is the best part: THE PICKY ONE went back for FOURTHS. Which means not only is this fast, easy & yummy but it will be making a regular rotation at our house. THANK YOU.
