Here are two recipes from Spice and Spirit published by Lubavitch Women's
Cookbook Publications ( a most wonderful cookbook!)

While this first contains 2 quartered potatoes, you could just leave them
out, or substitute additional beans or sweet potatoes.

Clean chicken and remove pieces of fat. Set chicken aside and put fat into
heavy 8 quart pot. Add pepper and turmeric and cook over hight flame for 5
minutes until fat melts. Place chicken in fat and brown on all sides.

In a large bowl, mix water and tomato paste. Add salt and remaining spices.
Pour mixture over the chicken, bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes.

Remove chicken and set aside.

Add rice to boiling sauce in pot, and cover. Lower flame and cook 15
minutes. Replace chicken in pot---add more water if too dry. Cover and
place on bleck before Shabbat.
