I made this with boneless skinless chicken breasts, frozen peas instead of canned, and used Goya Sazon in place of the saffron I didn't have. The chicken was tender, and the flavor was very good; I will definitely make it again. But I wish I had read the reviews before making this dish.
This recipe is poorly written. After preparing it, I can only assume that the chicken bouillon cubes were meant to be dissolved in two cups of water, as the rice clearly needed more liquid to cook. I added some part way through the cook time, but it was too little, too late, and the rice was a little undercooked when I served the dish. I did cover the dish while cooking the rice, although that wasn't specified. Had I not done that, I think the rice would have been too crunchy to eat.
As I mentioned, I used frozen peas in place of canned, and they worked out fine. But clearly, another flaw with the recipe was the description of how the peas are to be used. The ingredients specify that the can of peas is to be drained, but doesn't specify to reserve the liquid. Later, the recipe instructs to use the liquid from the peas. I think if this recipe were properly written, the results from following it would be outstanding.
