Altered ingredient amounts. Added 1 1/2 cup extra of stock and reduced the heat to a low simmer cause the rice was still raw after adding all 3 cups of stock - 23 Jun 2011


My family really liked this dish. I did add mushrooms to the dish which gave it more taste. Also I used smoked chicken as I wanted to use it up, gave it a nice taste. - 02 May 2014
