  1. Good but not a lot of flavor. I doubt I will make again.
  2. this recipe is really wonderful. It gets 5 stars for ease of preparation and another 5 stars for fantastic flavor. I did follow the advice of some other reviewers I used chicken broth instead of water added a couple of cloves of garlic and reduced the salt for 1 tablespoon to 1 teaspoon...
  3. A really wonderful recipe! Its was so easy to make and it was spectacular! I omitted the mushrooms and added garlic... delicious! Thank you for the recipe!
  4. This recipe was incredible! I added fresh chopped garlic and instead of water I used chicken broth and white wine. I don't eat rice but partner does so she made rice on the side and I just ate the mixture and the flavor was delicious! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

  8. Great-tasting one-dish chicken recipe! I cut way back on the salt (did you REALLY mean 1 tablespoon or is that a typo?) used fresh tomatoes instead of canned & added another half cup of water to help cook the rice. My husband and I both loved it - I will make this again.
  9. This was so easy & yummy. I used 1 Tbl of Olive Oil instead of butter chicken broth instead of water & the spicy green olives from the olive bar at the grocery store. It was spicy & yummy. My boyfriend told me we should have this at least once a week! And it took - Read more ...
