Chicken Kabsa

Chicken Kabsa is a traditional Saudi Arabian and Middle Eastern dish. Rice is flavoured with aromatic baharat spices, tomato and chickpeas and served with roasted chicken. A perfect dinner recipe to serve for guests or on special occasions such as Eid, made even easier with the fact that it is cooked entirely on the stove top.

Chicken kabsa, a cultural staple from Saudi Arabia. In this signature dish, rice is flavoured with whole spices, aromatic ground baharat spice blend, tomatoes and chicken stock.
