Serves: 4 servings
  • Chicken whole leg – 2
  • Long grain rice – 100 gms
  • Ripe tomatoes – 2, large, finely diced
  • Onion – 1, large, finely diced
  • Garlic paste – 1 tsp
  • Olive oil – ½ cup
  • Dried oregano – 1 tsp
  • Dried basil – 1 tsp
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sliced black olives to garnish
  • Water as required (As a thumb rule, add double volume of water as compared to rice)
  1. Heat a large skillet with high sides with olive oil in it. A saute pan is perfect for this recipe.
  2. Once the oil is hot, saute the onions and garlic paste in it for 5 minutes until aromatic.
  3. Add the chicken portions and let them turn golden brown on both sides.
  4. Add tomatoes and some water (not too much! Add in between if things start to stick too much.), salt and pepper and let everything cook for an hour.
  5. Add rice and continue to cook for another 15 minutes. Check if the rice is completely done.
  6. Boil off any excess water and serve hot garnishing with sliced black olives.
