Delish! Will be made again. Used soak dried apricots and cranberries as my mixed fruit. For the liquid, I increased it to 3 cups: 2 cups water, 1 cup chicken broth. Needed just a little longer to cook that stated, but probably just my oven. So easy. - 01 Aug 2012

My family loved this recipe. Easy to prepare tasted great. I used 4 Chicken Maryland pieces and added a small tin of capsicum and a small tin of super sweet corn to the rice mix. I used chicken stock instead of the water and used brown sugar. I baked the last ten minutes uncovered to crisp up the chicken skin. I will definitely make this again. - 04 Mar 2009
