Arabic Chicken Harees is a Ramadan special dish usually made with meat or chicken and boiled wheat and barley. One of the healthiest food I can think of. It is also known by the name of Hareesha, Harisa, jahreesa etc.

Different Arab cultures have different variations of this dish. Omanis like it with chicken, dry fruits, and barista. Whereas Emiratis and Qataris like it raw with meat and olive oil. Asians like it a bit spicy but Arabs love it light.

Basically, the harees is made with meat and has a lot of calories. Taking it to low-calorie levels making it with chicken is a good option.

Harees is among the list of my favorite foods that I cannot deny of and can eat without any hesitation. We cook Harees in Ramadan every alternate day.
