Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Pat chicken breasts dry and cut into 1/2" pieces. Set aside 1/4 the paprika. Season chicken with remaining paprika, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into 1/2" dice. Place rice in a mixing bowl and cover with water. Soak at least 10 minutes, then rinse in a wire-mesh strainer until water runs clear. While rice soaks, sear chicken.

  2. 2

    Sear the Chicken

    Place medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add chicken pieces to hot pan and sear undisturbed, 3-5 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate. Chicken will finish cooking in a later step. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  3. 3

    Poach the Chicken

    Return pan used to sear chicken to medium-high heat. Add 13/4 cup water, tomato paste, and remaining paprika and stir. Bring to a simmer and add chicken. Cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-5 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover with foil.

  4. 4

    Add Rice and Make Sauce

    Add rice and a pinch of salt to chicken poaching liquid and cook until rice is tender, 12-16 minutes. Remove rice to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve. While rice cooks, add yogurt, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt to a mixing bowl and whisk thoroughly.

  5. 5

    Cook the Onion and Spinach

    Return pan used to cook rice to medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and onions to hot pan. Cook 30 seconds, then add baharat seasoning. Cook until softened, 3-5 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in spinach.

  6. 6

    Finish the Dish

    Place rice on a plate. Add chicken on top of rice, then top with olive oil-yogurt sauce and almonds.
