Chicken pulao is a  quick and delicious one pot aromatic meal.It is different from the elaborate chicken biryani,but equally tasty and great for weekend lunch .Its simplicity in preparation yet delicious taste and flavor makes it a sure winner.

Add tomato puree and saute till it is cooked and oil separates. Add in the marinated chicken and half a cup of water cover and cook till the chicken is almost done.Chicken will have gravy at this stage. Add  rice on top along with 31/2 cups of hot water.
