Shadi’s One-Pot Turmeric Chicken and Rice

Sharing is caring!

There are so many healing dishes in Persian cooking! My mom used to make this when we were kids. It doesn’t have a particular name in Persian. We just call it “berenj va morgh ba zarchoobeh,” which means rice and chicken with turmeric. The chicken is cooked first in some water with spices, onion, and garlic. Then we remove the chicken and cook the rice in that broth. Later we shred the chicken and add it back to the pot.


  • 2 pounds beef stew meat
  • 2 (10.75 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1 cup ginger ale


Place beef in a slow cooker. Stir cream of mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix, onion, garlic, cremini mushrooms, and ginger ale in a bowl until thoroughly combined and pour the mixture over the beef.

Cover, set slow cooker to High, and cook for 1 hour; turn cooker down to Low and cook for 5 more hours.
