Easy Chicken Biryani in oven

Everybody loves biryani and trying to make it in many different ways is  the secret to keep the love going. This is a very simple recipe but it sure turns out delicious. The only time it needs from us is the time to marinate the chicken  and cook the rice in an open pan for 3-4 mins. Rest is all taken care of by the oven. Dont even have to check in between. See........ thats how easy it is.
Sometimes, I dont use biryani masala, instead I use sambar powder and garam masala combi. And that tastes no less.
