Modern Version:


  • 2 large boneless capon or chicken breasts
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup blanched almonds
  • 2 tbsp ice water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of rice
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 4 tsp brown sugar


  • Candied anise
  • Toasted slivered almonds

Bring the 2 1/2 cups water and 1 1/4 tsp salt to a boil and boil the chicken, covered for 15 minutes or until done.
Remove the chicken and set aside, reserving the broth.
Grind the almonds with the ice water in a blender or with mortar and pestle, until smooth.
To make almond milk, combine 2 cups of the broth with the ground almonds, and allow to stand for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Put the almond milk into a pan, and cook the rice in it with the salt, butter and brown sugar.
Meanwhile, dice the chicken breasts. Just before the rice is done, add the chicken. Stir to distribute the chicken pieces, and finish cooking the rice.
Just before serving, garnish with the toasted almonds and candied anise.
