Notes about this recipe

  • Zosia on September 25, 2014

    This was a really tasty dish but I had a few problems with the method. The chicken was first fried and then braised but didn't really benefit from either: crisp skin became soggy and the meat didn't pick up the flavour of the braising liquid. I slipped it under the broiler to re-crisp while the rice cooked. Also, I didn't need the additional 2 cups of water for the rice; the remaining braising liquid was enough to cook it perfectly. I would make this again because the rice was so delicious but next time I would either just roast the chicken, or skin it and cook it with the rice.
