Nothing feels more wholesome or welcoming than chicken and rice, which is probably why everyone’s mom in nearly every corner of the earth has their own take. This one-skillet dish is so versatile, it can take you wherever you want to go. Once you learn the basic steps and techniques, you can play with the spices, aromatics, and mix-ins. Sohla shows us two versions of this dish—one, inspired by paella and the other, by biryani—but the possibilities are endless.
