    Directions

    1. Boil the chicken breasts in a pan of salted water. Drain, cool, and shred.
    2. In another wider and taller pan, heat olive oil on low heat. Add chopped onion, and 2 garlic cloves. When the onion is translucent, add the rice, and stir occasionally. Add a little salt, curry, and saffron, and stir. When the rice starts to get transparent, add 3 times the amount of boiling water as the rice. Simmer, check the seasoning. Once cooked drain in a colander, and rinse with cold water, drain again. Set aside.
    3. Heat a very large skillet with a dash of olive oil. Add the remaining garlic cloves, then the mushrooms, followed by the peas. Simmer. When the mushrooms are cooked, add the leek, and mix.
