This was delicious rice, and the chicken breasts I used were well spiced, not hot. I used Garam Masala - Aromatic Kashmiri Spice Blend for Spicy Cooking!, less turmeric as I already was using Emirati Style Yellow Chicken Stock which includes it. I used an unrefined extra virgin olive oil, no ginger out of preference plus the rest and I also did add sea salt. I served it with a modified version of your recommendation Cumin Mint & Coriander Yogurt without the chilies. I would make this again but would like to add half of the spices into the rice rather than them all on the chicken as it was quite packed with spices.

Absolutely delicious, and so much easier to make than other biryani recipes! A little salt helps it out.

This was absolutely fantasic! I had no basmati rice, so I subbed in brown long grain rice and it turned out beautifully! I added some raisins to my rice before topping it with the chicken. Even my 9 year old loved this dish and said "Mommy, can we eat this again tomorrow night?" I served it with warm Naan bread and used fresh coriander from my garden, also use chicken thighs for the meat. TERRIFIC!! I'd give this 10 stars if I could, for the wonderful taste and aroma and also for the simplicity of the recipe! Made for Aussie swap :)

This was so yummy! And so easy. I followed the recipe fairly closely. Although I didn't cook mine in the oven. I just did mine on the stove top. It came out just fine. Tasted very close to a local resturant that serves this dish. Just what I was looking for. Lots of wonderful flavor. Enjoy!

This was great. I added 3 bay leaves as I had just trimmed my plant. I also added broccoli, pine nuts carrots and peas. With brown basmati rice it was a satisfying meal. I get those cravings every now and then cooking for a M-P&G guy! My son was home for the holidays and he loved it too. Thanks for a great recipe.

Ahhh finally I can comment and rate this gem of a recipe...simple and quick to assemble.The only thing I would mention is it does need some salt.You could add some frozen peas to it for a bit more colour and added vegetable goodness. I garnished it with wedges of hard-boiled egg as when my Indian friend prepares her Biryani,it always has the egg garnish.Lokks pretty too. :~) Made for the Aussie/NZ recipe swap #11

This was a very yummy dish with pleasant spices but not overwhelming. I used chicken thighs and I didn't change a thing in the recipe except I forgot to do was add the coriander. Thank you Stardustannie
