Easy Chicken Biryani

Easy Chicken Biryani

A quick, easy and healthy version of this traditional East Indian dish! Canola oil’s neutral taste allows the spices to shine through.



  1. In saucepan, heat canola oil over medium-high heat and sauté onion, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, turmeric, cardamom, cloves and cinnamon for 2 minutes to bring out flavors.
  2. Stirring constantly, add rice, chicken, yogurt, tomato and broth; cover and simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes or until rice is tender, chicken is cooked through and liquid is absorbed.
  3. Remove from stove and let stand for 5 minutes.
  4. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
