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. In my version, there are also some chickpeas added to the rice for some extra protein. The rice is served with chicken which first cooks in the onion and spice base of the kabsa rice and is then pan roasted in butter to add some colour and crispiness to the chicken. This is a beautiful dish to serve on a platter to feed guests on dinner parties or special occasions such as Eid.
