Rice with chicken

Rice with chicken (main dish)


Rise with chicken is an old traditional recipe that is prepared in every home in Macedonia and gathered families on a festive table on Sunday. This dish, in south-eastern Macedonia, can often be found and prepared for the Islamic holiday Ramadan Bajram.

Needed ingredients:

-Half a chicken

-400 g rice

-1-2 onions;

-dried vegetables (mixed spice “Vegeta”)


-black pepper

Preparation method:
Wash the half chicken meat and put it to boil. Once the water boils, change it with clean hot water and leave it to boil. When the meat is already cooked in water, we put salt and “Vegeta”, and we can proceed with preparing the rice. Cut the onion finely and fry it in a pan with a little oil until it gets a golden color. Wash the rice, it is estimated, add to the fried onion, and fry it together for a few minutes stirring constantly. Pour the rice in casserole no. 26, in which it will be baked and Saale with water in which the meat is cooked. The casserole with rice is left to boil at a moderate fire and add water if it is necessary. After 5 - 10 minutes, when the rice is almost ready, we put the meat from the boiled chicken on it. On top of it, we put black pepper and bake in a pre-heated oven, on 200 degrees, about 20 minutes.
