Expert Tips

The first step in classic pilaf recipes is to brown the rice in oil or butter. Although our streamlined recipe omits this step, the ingredients are traditional for a Middle Eastern pilaf.

Chicken tenders are juicy, tender strips cut from the underside of chicken breasts. Look for packages of chicken tenders in the poultry section of the meat department.

Shelled pistachio nuts can be used in place of the toasted almonds in this recipe.

To toast almonds, spread on cookie sheet; bake at 350°F. for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown stirring occasionally.
