This was a great recipe for me, because I had all the ingredients on hand (except the veggies, which I omitted) and I didn't have to defrost the chicken (which takes too long in the fridge, and in the microwave ends up half-cooked). I used drumsticks, but I think it would've been even easier to make with breasts. I served this to an apartment full of guys and they all said the meat tasted great. I myself found the rice delicious, because the lemon and chicken broth were incorporated so well. This recipe was not dry at all, and overall took me about 40-50 minutes to put together. I would make it again.

Very easy to make, and the rice had terrific flavor. I used canned chicken broth instead of water and boullion. Will definitely make it again.
