I learned this dish while in France - I use rice that comes prepackaged with the spices, but you can use plain rice and saffron to do the trick. I also sometimes throw shrimp in at the last minute.

Wonderful , flavorful, goodness. I used mahatma "spicy" yellow rice, so I left out the jalapeno. I over did the thyme a bit,( my fault I got over zealous with the spices, I used fresh thyme and rosemary) but it was still phenomenal. I cooked the whole dinner in one big skillet. Cooked the pork chops (didn't use chicken) in the skillet , put them aside , cooked the veggies til soft then threw in the herb/spices for a few minutes then added the rice with the seasoning packet and the water , covered for ten minutes added pork chops and peas then covered for another 15 minutes.....perfection in a pan!! Don't omit the cloves in fact all the spices work together for a wonderful combo and don't omit the squeeze of lemon at the end it adds a freshness and flavor thats delish. If your'e not used to using these herbs give this a try , it will make a believer out of you.

I made a more mild version of this, but it was still wonderful.

This is pretty good but I think a different sauce is needed. Chili sauce is ok but my husband thought that maybe a green sauce would actually be better. Will probably try again with changes.
