This recipe could lend itself to any change I believe, so change I did. Need to get those down before I forget, lol. I diced a small onion, and 3 stalks of celery, sauteed in 3 TB of butter, then added 2-3 inch cuts of fresh asparagus, let it sautee a bit, then deglazed pan with 2 cups of "Kitchen Basics" chicken stock. Added 1 tsp. Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper. Stirred in 1 cup of long grain white rice, and poured all into a greased 13x9 in. pan. I topped the rice/veggie mixture with 6 bone-in chicken thighs and sprinkled those with some Paprika (I just felt with the lovely greens a touch of red would be nice visually, if I hadn't been lazy I think some diced pimento or better still roasted red peppers would be lovely.) Well I was very disappointed so changed from an anticipatory rating of 4 down to a 2 star. If I hadn't added the asparagus this would have had no taste whatsoever. Definitely a workable idea. I would add 3 cloves of minced garlic, thinking about diced tomato...or the roasted red peppers I had thought about, possibly some red pepper flakes, just a few to zip this up a bit. I used Kitchen Basics Stock which is very good, very flavorful...even with that this was so bland it was just sad. As I say, don't discount the concept...but trust me, doctor this up!
