This Week's Film: The Stoning of Soraya M.
Cuisine: Iranian

This one-dish meal is a sweetly savory delight. The chicken, although simple, is moist and tender. Orange juice, lemon zest, and dried apricots bring their fruity essence to the dish, as whole cinnamon, cardamom pods, and bay leaves add their spicy aromas, with toasted almonds for texture. Chicken breasts may also be cut into smaller pieces and embedded in the rice rather than cooking them on the surface of the dish.
