One pan, easy to prepare, delightful to smell and eat. I throw this on when I have company coming, as I know I don't have to watch it. The recipe can be expanded easily by adding more rice, water and vegetables. It's always delicious!

Good and easy to prepare. The recipe asks for an excessive amount of pepper, making the dish very hot. Had I also added the indicated 2 T of hot sauce, a hole would have been burned through the pot. Glad I tasted before adding hot sauce and was able to thus prevent the dish from becoming inedible.

This calls for way too much pepper! Cut the pepper to 1/2 or even 1/4 teaspoon, and it'll be delicious.

I didn't use the chicken in the recipe, as I only needed a side for our lobster dinner last night. I used basmati rice and my own medley of vegies. The whole family enjoyed this very much Gayle!
