Delicious. I made too much of the rice mixture so I just put the extra rice in the bottom of the pan, under the chicken. The rice absorbed the juices from the chicken and tasted excellent.

This is an absoloutely excellent Persian recipe... just what I was looking for! It was a hit at Thanksgiving with everyone, Persian or not. My babajon (dad) was especially happy and proud to see me cook my first pot of good basmati rice! The rice turned a beautiful color from the tumeric and the raisins plump so nicely. We stuffed our turkey with it! Merci jonam, Nasi.

The stuffing gave a wonderfully light & delicate flavor to the chicken as it baked. Very easy to prepare, although you should use a medium or large skillet when preparing the onion/raisin mixture for the stuffing, it's all just too much for a small one. I will certainly make this again, maybe with cornish hens next time. Thanks Nazi!
