Chicken pilaf is a frequently preferred dish in Turkish cuisine for its practicality and taste. In this recipe, we combined shredded chicken meat with a delicious rice and created a wonderful and classic flavor with the richness of olive oil and butter.

While serving your chicken pilaf hot, do not forget to add flavor to it by serving it with Berrak Smooth Pickled Gherkins. The crunch and aromatic taste of our tender pickles will create a wonderful balance with the soft texture of your rice. Enjoy your meal!

Soak the rice in warm water with 1 teaspoon of salt until the water cools down. Then wash it with plenty of water and drain.

Heat the olive oil in the pot. Add the washed and drained rice and fry over low heat for 5 minutes.

Add 1.5 cups of boiling chicken broth.

Once it boils for a few minutes, reduce the heat to low.

Close the lid of the pot. Cook until the rice absorbs its water. Remove from the stove, add 1 teaspoon of small chopped cold butter pieces and taste. Close the lid of the pot. Let it brew for 5 minutes.

Transfer the rice with the shredded chicken meat to a serving plate. If you wish, serve with Berrak Smooth Pickled Gherkins.
