    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


    I didn't read the instructions properly so put all the curry in the paprika and butter mix. I also missed the important step of covering while it cooked, so my rice was pretty much uncooked. Won't make that mixtake next time and there will definetly be a next time because despite my mistakes it was really good and it would be amazing if I hadn't made mistakes.  -  23 Sep 2017
