 Chicken Kebabs over Saffron-Barberry Rice with Sugar Snap Peas

Greek Yogurt, 2 tablespoons

Sweet Curry Spice Blend, 1 tablespoon

Chicken Breast, 8 ounces

Butter, 2 pats

Garlic, 2 cloves

Dried Barberries, 1 tablespoon

Basmati Rice, 3/4 cup

Sliced Almonds, 1/4 cup

Dill, 5 sprigs

Saffron, 1/8 teaspoon

1 Shallot

Sugar Snap Peas, 4 ounces

Cooking Oil

Water

Kosher Salt

Step 1

• In a bowl, combine yogurt, sweet curry spice and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.

• Cut each chicken breast into 8 equal pieces.

• Add chicken to bowl. Stir to coat.

Step 2

MISE EN PLACE

• Peel and mince garlic.

• Pick and chop dill fronds; reserve stems.

• Peel and thinly slice shallot.

• Discard pea tips and strings.

Step 3

• Place a saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 pat butter. When butter melts, add garlic. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

• Add barberries. Cook, stirring, 2 minutes.

• Add rice, almonds, dill stems, 1 cup water, saffron and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.

• When mixture simmers, cover pan, and reduce heat to low. Cook until most liquid is absorbed, 8-10 minutes. Keep covered, and remove from heat.

Step 4

While rice cooks:

• Place 4 chicken pieces on each skewer.

• Keep pieces next to each other, but not pressed firmly together.

Step 5

• Place a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons cooking oil. When oil is hot, add chicken skewers. Cook without disturbing until browned on bottom, 3-4 minutes.

• Flip skewers.

Step 6

Scatter in shallot and peas around the skewers. Cook, stirring vegetables occasionally, until shallot becomes translucent and chicken is opaque throughout, about 4 minutes.

Step 7

Stir in 1/4 cup water, remaining 1 pat butter and chopped dill. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired with kosher salt.

Step 8

• Fluff rice with a fork. Divide between 2 plates.

• Serve skewers over barberry rice with peas and shallots on the side. Enjoy!
