Boneless Chicken Yakhni Pulao (Boneless Chicken Broth Pilaf)

Asslamo Alaikum,


Growing up in Pakistani family, food has always been a big part of our lives actually if I say that our lives revolves around food won't be a lie . Thinking about it right now when I'm a little conscious about what I'm eating we ate lots of unhealthy food but still it was mostly from scratch homemade and with lots of love and care ,I believe that we cannot even compare those delicious food with our so called healthy food available in store home cooked is always best and is going to be best forever:)
   

             Today 'm sharing with you a little easier version of my all time favorite comfort food that is Yakhni Pulao ,i bet if you have ever had Yakni Pulao you know that goat Yakhni Pulao taste much better then chicken one !! Today's boneless chicken Pulao will taste if not better same as goat Pulao ( which take longer cooking process) as I'm using beef broth which i had made earlier..

in sha Allah.Before I get started  with another rant lets get to our tasty recipe!!
