Make this often. It is a great change from plain old white rice. Good with beef broth also. Very tasty

Nice balance of sweet and savory Indian spices. Made with skinless, boneless chicken thighs and served with rice.

The recipe as given is a good recipe with tendencies to be a little watery. You may use the recipe as is or alter: Use only 1 cup Broth Simmer to water evaporation Cover, reduce to lowest setting, heat 17 minutes. Remove from heat, uncover, rest 5 mins, gently fluff, rest 5 mins, fluff, rest 10 mins more, serve. Refrigerate/freeze for later use.

This recipe works better and the rice comes out not so mushy if you bring all ingredients to a boil and THEN add the rice.

I fix this all the time since I have a kidney disease and the steriods I take for it have given me diabetes. I now have to find recipes that are suitable for both my diseases. I give this a 4 star rating
