Add all ingredients to a large pot mix well. Then add chicken and coat it well. Let it sit and marinate for 20-30 minutes.
While the chicken is marinating I recommend you prepare the cauliflower rice.
Place the large pot with the chicken over medium heat. Cover and cook for 12 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
Remove the lid and cook on medium-high for another 6 minutes. Then turn the heat to high until some of the excess liquid melts to your desired level. ~ 6-10 minutes.
Place saffron with water in a small bowl and mix slighltly. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
Use a deep dish or a large pot where you can layer the rice with chicken curry. Place a layer of cauliflower rice then add chicken curry, then some fried onions, and some cilantro. Continue layering until all the rice and chicken is done. Generally, the top layer should end with rice (so adjust as needed).
Add in random areas the saffron water and saffron to give it a boost of color.
Garnish with cilantro, fried onions, and some yogurt and serve. Enjoy!

***You can also fry onions on your own. It just takes more work. The flourless fried onion is a better choice. ***You can also adjust salt intake based on your preference. If you are on a low sodium diet then you can add some lemon juice on top of the biryani for a nice kick and flavor.
