Spiced Chicken Pilau

Over 3&1/2 years ago, I originally posted this recipe, so I thought I’d share it with you again as it’s one of my go-to recipes. As a matter of fact, I just made it today – it’s aromatic mixture as it simmers in the crockpot is torture, but more than worth the wait! I’ll serve it with either Jasmine or Basmati rice on the side, rather than cooked in the pot, though that’s my personal preference; if you want a truly delicious, all-in-one dish, this is it.


Here’s another favourite recipe of mine; it’s a great crockpot / slow cooker meal – just toss it in, give it an occasional stir, and enjoy!  I prepare and serve the rice separately rather than including it in the mix, but to each his or her own…

If you’re not yet acquainted with Fenugreek, it’s about time!  It’s an amazing little spice that adds a unique flavour to Indian and Asian cuisine.  Hard as a rock, these are NOT something you want to toss in at the last minute!  But given time to cook into the menu, they release an aromatic bouquet of flavours that you’ll wonder how you’ve lived this long without.
