Chicken biryani recipe, Ramadan recipes

Chicken biryani is a flavorful and delicious one pot meal prepared with aromatic basmati rice and chicken. This chicken biryani is prepared in stove top method and uses biriyani masala to add more flavors and taste. I have posted many varieties of biryani both veg and non-veg recipes earlier but thought to post this super simple and easy to make biryani as EID festival is almost there. In this recipe I used store bought biryani masala which can be replaced with homemade biryani masala as well and also used chicken drumstick and thighs in the making. Also for this recipe I dint marinate chicken before cooking to keep it simple but if you have enough time and want it even more tasty you can marinate the chicken with salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder, curd, ginger garlic paste and lemon juice for min 1 hour/ overnight.  So let’s get to the making!
