Chicken Biryani 
is one of the most popular Pakistani dishes and is the perfect main entree for a dinner party.
This is a delicious Pakistani Rice chicken Recipe, Traditional chicken biryani has several types. which is often reserved for very special occasions such as weddings, parties, or holidays. It has a lengthy preparation, but the work is definitely worth it. For biryani, always use long grain rice. Basmati rice with its thin, fine grains is the ideal variety to use

My recipe includes the basic steps to make a great biryani. While this recipe contains just the essential ingredients to make a biryani, you can also add cashews, raisins, hard-boiled eggs, fried potatoes, extra crispy fried onions, and many other ingredients to make it richer and more flavorful

In my opinion, the one additional ingredient that adds maximum flavor is crispy fried onions. I skip them in this recipe, but you can make them at home or just buy a bag from an ethnic grocery store and add them to the chicken and rice when assembling the biryani

In the end, remember that making biryani is not hard. Once you do it a couple of times, you’ll realize that effectively all you are doing is making a Chicken Curry and rice but are combining them and taking it to the next level of deliciousness. If you simply follow this recipe, you’ll love the results – before you know it, you’ll be making it every weekend…

Avoid Common Pitfalls:
Soak the rice for at least 60 minutes, this makes it less likely that the rice grains will break when cooked. It also reduces the time for which the rice must be boiled.
The rice needs to be slightly undercooked, so that it finishes cooking in the pot along with the chicken and is perfectly cooked and not soft and mushy. So remember to keep a close watch when boiling the rice.
