One of my all time favorite Iranian Dishes is Zareshk Polo Morgh. Essentially it’s Basamati rice, topped with Saffron rice, topped with barberries and then this delicious stewed chicken. This recipe is that stewed chicken, and it is so tender and flavorful. Ah, such simple pleasures in life.
Yes, I have been known to try to recreate my favorite dishes from restaurants. This recipe is no exception. Going to Persian restaurants, my all time favorite is Zareshk Polo. I think I’m the only one in my family who just loves it. I’ll choose it over Koobideh any day.
So, I recreate it for home. It’s not as good without the soft billowy basamati saffron rice and tart barberries, but it sure does feel like comfort food.
