Gluten free dinner chicken biryani cooked in olive oil

Gluten-free dinner chicken biryani cooked in olive oil: This biryani recipe is on the healthier side. Coz I am not using a lot of ghee, I am using olive oil instead. So the calorie-conscious can try and make this at home, and trust me you won’t know the difference in flavor. This tastes as good as any regular ghee laden biryani. Also for people who think biryani making is tough, you must try my recipe. I have tried to simplify it also I am breaking down the steps so that it’s easier to follow.
