I decided to prepare this as a side dish and omit the chicken since it didn't seem to be the main contributor to the flavor. Unfortunately, this dish was not a success due to an inacurate cooking time and not enough liquid to fully cook the rice. I read the review of a previous poster saying she had that problem, so, I kept an eye on the rice so it wouldn't burn. The liquid was absorbed after 20 minutes, but, the rice was still crunchy. I ended up adding almost another full cup of liquid and it had to cook almost 45 minutes. At that time most of the rice was cooked, but, there were still some crunchy pieces throughout the dish. I gave it a two based strictly on flavor, but, I would have given it one star based on the cooking directions.
