A classic Lebanese weeknight dinner recipe, hushwee rice is cooked in clarified butter and seasoned with cinnamon then topped with shredded chicken and toasted pine nuts.
My family gets together for Sunday dinner almost every week, either at my house, my sister’s house or my mom’s house. This Lebanese Hushwee Rice with Roasted Chicken is inspired by my mom who makes this Syrian comfort food dish for our family on a regular basis.
To stretch the meal even further, my mom often tops it with shredded roasted chicken and/or beef. Some days it’s from a rotisserie chicken, other days it is homemade Lebanese Roasted Chicken. It really just depends on what she has on hand and how much time she has to cook.
Your family is waiting.
Do you have a beef version of this recipe?
