"This recipe is my twist on a traditional Persian chicken and rice dish introduced to me by a good friend's wife at a family dinner. I like to serve this to my family as a main meal accompanied with a salad."

My son loved this! Made the recipe as instructed, but added a bit of salt and pepper when cooking chicken, and cooked the chicken for less time, as it was already done at 25 min or so. Next time I would add more raisins, and spice it up a bit more (my husband wanted more spice). However, my son even wanted the leftovers for breakfast!
