This healthy, gluten-free chicken recipe has that hint of taste which will win your heart on its way to your tummy and you have to thank me later 😀 . It is absolutely effortless to make while having an amazing flavourful taste. This is one of my go-to recipes because it’s just one pan/pressure cooker and it’s basically hands off. How could you not love juicy chicken pieces, some strong Indian spices, brown rice and healthy fats? All you do is put them all together in a pressure cooker and cook.
