Chicken Tabsi

Warm spicy and full of flavour, this chicken dish has been a staple in our household for the longest time. It is one of my favourite growing up. 

  
This recipe is very special to my heart as it reminds me of the time my mom used to make it for us. The best part about this recipe is that it is so easy to make. All you need is some chicken, potatoes, carrots and spices.
