"I can eat this dish every night. I learned this recipe, like most of my Mother's recipes, without measurement. Here is my best effort to share it."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

cooked chicken thighs
chicken bouillon (such as Knorr®)
1 1/2 tablespoons
chopped fresh cilantro
ground black pepper
Tasty! I used onions and red and yellow peppers instead of the carrots and celery - because that is what I had on hand. This is soupy, so expect that. Serve with white onions and cilantro on top - a little cheese is nice too. Thanks - this is comfort food!
I made this exactly as the recipe says. It was simple and good. It may be a little bland for some; but could easily be spiced up.
Tasty! I happened to all but one of the ingredients on hand, this is a great dish for a cold football night. I didn't have tomato sauce so I substituted most of a can of tomato paste, which I think gave it good flavor. I also used two packets of that Swanson Flavor Booster. I'd definitely would make this again.
I radically modified this recipe to use only what I had on hand. I sauteed onion and garlic, added tomato paste, cumin, paprika and salt with the rice. I browned the ride a little bit and added the broth and chicken on top. I simmered it until the rice was done, added some cilantro. It was delicious.
I really liked this dish. I did make some changes as I have 4 boys who eat like it is the last supper. I used thighs, drumsticks and breast. I seasoned them with salt, pepper, garlic powder, sazon (Goya), season salt and parsley then lightly fried them. I doubled the rice and used 5 cups of water. It takes WAY longer than 15 minutes mine took about 35 minutes to be cooked. I also added onion while browning the rice. Flavor was great and used tostadas and queso fresco to complete the meal.
I was hesitant about the 4 cups of water, but it comes out ok.
