Riz Ala' Dajaj (Chicken and Rice)
Riz ala' dajaj (pronounced da-jej) or chicken and rice is a delicious Lebanese rice dish traditionally cooked for special occasions. It is typically served as a side dish but can definitely be eaten as a main dish (it has chicken and beef in it!). Here's a fun fact: when I was a kid, a few of my friends would add in their own ingredients to this dish like hot sauce, salad dressing, or yogurt when they were visiting for dinner. Personally, I adore this recipe as it is and would not add a thing!
