Do NOT Marinate! Start by slicing the boneless chicken breasts into 2 inch dice pieces. Place it in a wide bowl, sprinkle with a pinch of Tahoon - Baharat Mix Spice - to your preference - and mix it together.
Peel and cut the onion into 4 pieces. Put it in the food mixer/food processor; mix it until it turns into a liquid. Pour it over the diced chicken and mix.
Put 1 tsp. butter into a nonstick pot. Place the pot on the stove and set it at medium heat until the butter is melted. Add the chicken and cook by stirring and mixing it all together for a few seconds, then cover the pot until the onion starts to get a yellow color.
Remove the lid and add 3 cups of water. Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat to low and add ¼ (quarter) tsp. salt - or to your preference - and stir. Put the lid back on and let it simmer for 15 minutes until the chicken is tender.
While waiting for the chicken to cook, start preparing the rice. Place the rice into a fine mesh strainer and rinse with cold (tap) water. Wash the rice for about 20 seconds until the water turns clear. This will help get rid of the dusty starch and prevent the rice from being too sticky.
Take out the cooked chicken pieces, put it in a plate and set aside. Continue to cook the remaining sauce in the pot under low heat and add 1 ¼ (one and quarter) tsp. Tahoon - Kidra Yellow Rice Spice (Saffron Rice Spice) - or to your preference - to the sauce and mix for 1 minute.
