Baharat Chicken and Rice
Baharat is a middle Eastern spice blend that literally means “spices” in Arabic. You can create your own blend of spices or buy a pre-made blend. I like to use the Baharat Seasoning from Simply Organic (this is what is pictured here). It is a blend of ground cumin, coriander, black pepper, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, allspice, rose petals, ginger, and nutmeg. This Middle Eastern chicken and rice dish is easy enough to make for a family weeknight dinner, yet elegant enough to be served as a main dish for a special occasion. Serve with a cucumber and tomato salad or winter fennel salad for a balanced meal.
