I made this dish for my family and everyone loved it even my picky eaters! I did add a little cilantro. :) It was a fantastic meal I will definatly make again.


Easy to make and very tasty!


I did a few things differently. Instead of using whole chicken breasts, I cut them up and cooked it, and then added the rice, veggies, etc. I also used real saffron, which I paid ten dollars for and got an otherwise empty bottle with a partially filled baggie at the bottom. So next time, instead of using saffron, I'll just get one of those packages of Spanish/yellow rice that's already seasoned with the saffron. They cost like fifty cents.


This was good but I added sun dried tomatoes and crab meat and then it was really good. you can make this recipe vegitarian and its still super lucsious.


Great recipe!


This recipe was very good. My family thoroughly enjoyed, however for the chicken, I used blackened seasoning to give it a spicier taste.


This recipe was so good. Try it for yourself.
