One Pot Middle Eastern Chicken and Rice

I absolutely love this Middle Eastern Chicken recipe because it is full of flavors that are warm and comforting. For me comfort food is all about eating a meal that reminds you of home, and whenever I have this middle eastern chicken I am instantly transported to my childhood and family dinners around the dinner table.

From a young age my mom always stressed the importance of using fresh and quality ingredients whenever we made a meal. Saturday mornings were spent at the farmers market picking up local produce, meat, and chicken to use to prepare in the meals for the week. Now that I’m an adult I still shop this way, and today’s middle eastern chicken recipe is no different.

I teamed up with Foster Farms to bring you a dish that redefines comfort food, and to introduce to you the #NewComfortFood, a modern healthy twist using mostly local and seasonal ingredients.

For the chicken, I used Foster Farms Simply Raised Fresh Chicken. Family owned, California grown, and free of antibiotics this was of course the natural choice. I absolutely love that I can make a run to my local grocery store (I picked this up at Ralph’s), and know that I am getting chicken that has been raised right in my own state. It just inspires me to create healthier versions of my favorite comfort food.
