Good basic chicken and rice dish. Before preparing I read all reviews. I did not have green pepper so I used a serrano and an orange bell pepper. For tomatoes, I used diced with jalapeno. I also added 2 cloves of minced garlic after sauteing the onion and peppers. I changed the amount of paprika to 1 tsp., added 1/4 tsp of turmeric and dissolved a generous pinch of saffron threads in the chicken broth. I had a small serving of homemade chorizo in the refrigerator, so I threw that in when adding the liquid and tomatoes. I brought the liquid to a simmer on the stovetop then finished the dish covered in the oven at 375 for 25 minutes. Before serving I added 1 c. of frozen peas, and let the heat from the finished dish warm them. This was a delicious "poor man's" paella, which I will be serving over and over again. Four stars because I changed it so much.
