I want to make Delia's Basque chicken but I don't have brown rice, only arborio or long grain - which would give a better result?

Chicken Basque

Hello AnnieG49,

I have Delia sitting here with me and she says the reason she used brown rice in this recipe is that it takes 40 minutes to cook. There is a cheat’s version ‘a sort of chicken basque’ in how to cheat and we now use a sauce called Dress Italian instead of Fritto.

However as it has been one of the most successful recipes that Delia has done over the years so if it is possible it would be good to get some brown rice if you can.

Best wishes
