Ingredients

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large braising pan or Dutch oven set over medium heat. Sauté the garlic for 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant.
  • Add the onion, peppers, and peas and saute for 5 minutes, until the onion and peppers begin to soften.
  • Add the chicken and sear on all sides for 2 minutes (it does not need to fully cook at this point).
  • Add the rice and stir until the chicken, vegetables and rice are thoroughly mixed, about 1 minute.
  • Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, saffron, cumin, turmeric, salt, ground pepper, and red pepper flakes, if using. Mix to combine.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, until the rice is fluffy and no broth remains.
  • Serve hot with additional black pepper and red pepper flakes.
