Chakhokhbili with mushroom shila plavi
Chakhokhbili (stewed chicken with fresh herbs and tomatoes) and shila plavi with mushrooms (similar to risotto) are two popular Georgian dishes that go well with each other. Tender and juicy chicken meat with a hearty portion of rice with mushrooms will be an ideal solution for your dinner. As a rule, shila plavi has a creamy consistency, but in this version each grain is distinct and not mushy.
