PREP RICE THE DAY BEFORE, COOKING TIME 55 MINUTES Minutes
On the day before, place the wild rice in a pot and cover it with cold water. Put the lid on and place in the fridge overnight.1
On the day of serving, heat half of the olive oil in a large flameproof, heavy-based baking dish over medium heat. Briefly brown all sides of the chicken then remove and set aside on a plate. Heat the remaining oil and cook the onion and garlic until softened. Add the spices and cook for a further minute.
Add in the rice, water, chicken bone broth powder, salt, orange juice, figs and cranberries. Place the chicken, skin side up and cover with a lid.3
Place in the oven and bake for 1 hour. Remove the lid and cook for a further 30 minutes or until rice is tender, the liquid is absorbed and chicken is turning crispy and golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes.4
To serve, sprinkle with the pistachios, dill and pomegranate as well as dollops of the almond dip or yoghurt, if you prefer.5
