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.

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.

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!
