Chicken Biryani is a rice based dish made with rice, chicken and lots of spices. Normally, this dish should be cooked in a large pan in slow cooking process on low heat, but nowadays we don't have enough time to cook this kind of dish in the traditional way. Instead, I created this shortcut version of the Traditional Chicken Biryani, cooked with oil instead of Ghee or Butter (which are usually important ingredients for this dish). This is a quick and healthier version of traditional Chicken Biryani!

*Note: While this dish is made with a pressure cooker, you can still make it even if you do not have one! All you need is a rice cooker, dutch oven, or a large soup pot. 

The only adjustment you need to make for the recipe is ensuring the water you use is double the amount of rice you're using for your biryani (example: for 1 cup of rice, you'll need 2 cups of water). Cook it on medium-low heat until your chicken is done!
