Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Heat olive oil in a heavy, oven-safe skillet over high heat. Cook chicken breasts on both sides until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Remove chicken breasts from skillet and set aside. Add onion and ground beef to the skillet; cook until onions are starting to brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Season with cinnamon, allspice, salt, and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.

  • Stir rice into the skillet until fully coated with oil and spices. Place chicken breasts on top of the rice and pour in broth. Cover skillet with a tight-fitting lid or aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until rice has absorbed all liquid, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with parsley before serving.

Cook's Note:

A cast-iron skillet works best for this dish. You can also use ground lamb instead of beef.

I made this recipe with ground lamb in a cast-iron skillet. I used half of a small onion instead of dehydrated. Very simple to make. I would have liked a little deeper in flavor. Maybe more garlic? Check the rice mine could have used an additional 5 minutes. Read More
