Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Chicken biryani is a wonderfully aromatic rice dish which can be made with chicken on the bone for even more flavor or with boneless chicken for simplicity. Brown rice, being a great staple carbohydrate source contains an array of essential nutrients such as B vitamins, phosphorus, selenium, magnesium, etc. Compared to simply white rice, not only its fiber content is high, but also low in glycemic index, reducing the blood sugar levels to rise. Chicken is an excellent source of proteins, vitamin B, phosphorus, a mineral called selenium which helps to protect your immune system.
