STOVETOP CHICKEN BIRIYANI

STOVETOP CHICKEN BIRIYANI
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Serves: 2

Method

Place the chicken thighs, spiced yoghurt, lemon zest, coriander, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix well to combine and reserve for 20 minutes to marinate.

Place the rice in a separate bowl and mix with the garlic, ginger, spice mix and salt.

Melt butter in a heavy based pot with a 3-4 litre capacity. Remove from the heat and spread half the rice mixture over the base of the pot. Arrange the chicken, marinade liquid, and spinach over the top of the rice. Cover with the rest of the rice mixture.

Pour the stock over the top. Cover the pot tightly and cook over a low heat for 30 mins without uncovering. Remove the lid and cook another 5 mins to further reduce and lightly brown the base.

While the rice is cooking, pan-fry the almonds in butter.

Serve the biriyani garnished with the almonds and extra coriander leaves.
