Chicken Saag with Almond Basmati Rice

Recipe Details


Saag is one of our go-to favorites when dining out at Indian restaurants. The leafy green–based dish (typically spinach) can be made with a variety of proteins. Here, Chef Liz spotlights chicken, which is roasted and shredded for tender texture. It's coated in the classic creamy sauce of spinach, tomato paste, ginger, garlic, and garam masala, plus jalapeño for customizable heat.
