In a Food52 video about her Persian-ish Rice, Samin Nostrat says one of her ideal ways to enjoy it is with poached chicken flavored with saffron, chicken and onions. This stew is inspired by Samin's love for a big plateful of crispy-meets-soggy goodness. Chicken thighs and drumsticks are slowly browned, rendering their fat to create an extra luscious, silky sauce. Plus, a double dose of lemon—slices of caramelized lemon and chopped preserved lemon—adds a bright, lively freshness that pairs beautifully with the rice and a generous dollop of yogurt.
