The chicken was good, but tye rice was a bit greasy, so I'd use a bit oess evoo next time. Start chicken then do rice IMO. The Ultimate. the BEST Chicken and Rice recipe ever is this Persian Chicken and Rice (AKA Morgh Polo).
The key to a perfect Persian pilaf is cooking the rice until it's lightly spiced and fluffy then adding fresh herbs, pomegranate, raisins and chicken. Don't forget to serve everyone some of the crust on the bottom – that's the best bit!
