I can eat this dish every night. I learned this recipe, like most of my Mother's recipes, without measurement. Here is my best effort to share it.

Tasty! I used onions and red and yellow peppers instead of the carrots and celery - because that is what I had on hand. This is soupy, so expect that. Serve with white onions and cilantro on top - a little cheese is nice too. Thanks - this is comfort food!

Tasty! I happened to all but one of the ingredients on hand, this is a great dish for a cold football night. I didn't have tomato sauce so I substituted most of a can of tomato paste, which I think gave it good flavor. I also used two packets of that Swanson Flavor Booster. I'd definitely would make this again.

I radically modified this recipe to use only what I had on hand. I sauteed onion and garlic, added tomato paste, cumin, paprika and salt with the rice. I browned the ride a little bit and added the broth and chicken on top. I simmered it until the rice was done, added some cilantro. It was delicious.
