Lemon Chilean EVOO Chicken Biryani (Indian Rice with Chicken)

This flavorful chicken dish is enhanced by the delicious combination of lemon, garlic, and Chilean extra virgin olive oil!


  • 1 pound chicken thighs or breasts
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 purple onion
  • 3 teaspoons Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ chile pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of Garam Masala
  • 1 cup long grain basmati rice
  • 2 Tablespoons coriander


  • Marinate the chicken with lemon juice and 1 garlic clove overnight.
  • Cut off the root and stem of the onion and slice into semi circles. Caramelize the onion by placing the slices in a large pan with 1 teaspoon Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add 1 teaspoon sugar. Cook on low heat to avoid burning the sugar. Add salt and stir continuously until onions are golden brown.
  • Dice the pepper and sauté in 1 teaspoon Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add the Garam Masala and pepper to the onions.
  • Add a cup of rice and sauté everything together for a few minutes. Pour in 2 cups of boiling water and a pinch of salt and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon Chilean Extra Virgin Olive Oil and 2 cloves of garlic (chopped or crushed) in a deep pan. Add the chicken and sauté for 10 to 15 minutes. Keep moving the chicken around to prevent sticking.
  • Spoon the rice onto a serving platter and sprinkle with the coriander. Arrange the chicken pieces on top. Serve.
