Chicken Cranberry Rice پلو کرنبری

I created this recipe because I love Cranberry! the sour/sweet taste of this recipe is amazing!


350-400 gr Boneless Skinless chicken breast,

100-150 gr fresh or frozen Cranberry,

100-150 gr Dried Cranberry,

100-150 gr walnuts,

1 large Onion,

3 cups of Rice

vegetable oil, Turmeric, Salt, Pepper, Saffron

optional: 1 tsp Cumin

Put the Boneless Skinless chicken breast into a pan, add half cup of water, saffron and salt, simmer slowly

after getting cold the chicken breast make them strips,

fry thinly sliced 1 large onion with some vegetable oil until golden yellow, add some turmeric

then add chicken strips into the fried onion, salt and pepper, saute for 5 mins

add the Cranberries, stir-fry for another 5 mins,

add walnuts small pieces, stir-fry for another 5 mins,

add dried cranberries and stir-fry for 2 mins, turn off the heat,

add 3 cups of rice, 1 cup Chicken Liquid, 2 cups of water, more saffron if needed, vegetable oil, salt, pepper, and some cumin if you like

put the lid on, turn on the electric rice cooker (or any kind of pot)

During the half time of  the Rice cooking process( after 10-15 mins), while most of the water evaporates,

 add all ingredients and mix with half-cooked rice,

avoid reaching the ingredients in the bottom of the pan,

 the point is: dig some deep holes in the rice mixture with a handle of a (wooden) spoon to make sure the water will evaporate !

put the lid on, and let the cooking process continue on low heat,

 rice cooking time totally : around 45-60 mins
