In a small sauce pan, heat olive oil with the tomato paste. Cook for about 30 seconds. Add the 1 tsp of turmeric and cook for another minute or so to fully dissolve the turmeric and the tomato starts to darken. Remove from heat and set aside.

Set instant pot to sauté and add 2 Tbl of butter. Add the onion and cook until fragrant and soft. Do not brown the onions. Remove and set aside.

Salt and pepper the chicken. Add a little olive oil to the instant pot and brown the chicken in small batches, removing when brown.

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.
