Millennial Biryani

This boneless chicken biryani is perfect for picky eaters, and I happen to know a whole lot of them. This always comes to the rescue, even though I’m a traditionalist who likes fighting over the best boti in the biryani. I’ve started making this boneless version to keep the peace, but don’t be fooled. I never compromise on flavor, texture or aroma, so this biryani delivers on all fronts. The masala is still luscious, the chicken is still bursting with flavor, and the rice is still perfectly cooked. So what are you waiting for?

First I thought hot chocolate, but then reason kicked in and I rushed to the freezer to take out some frozen chicken and make soup for dinner. I didn’t even wait for the chicken to defrost.

This truly is a winter wonder, but I find myself making this in the summer as well!

Lemon Oregano Chicken

This recipe just hits the spot every time I make it. You don’t even miss the spice, although the cayenne does add a subtle kick. The lemon juice, sumac and oregano all add a flair you won’t be able to get enough of, and the combination of this Lemon Oregano Chicken with pita bread, fattoush, and hummus is just amazing. If I’m making one thing, you better bet I’m making all the fix ins to go with it! Bbq is the way to go, but it you’re stuck in the midwest in the peak of winter, a grill pan or frying pan will get the job done as well…
