This was very bland, we had alot of leftovers so the next night we added cooked bacon and reheated it in the fry pan. It tasted much better after the bacon had been added.

Tried to make this twice now, 1st time rice and chicken didn't cook, 2nd time the rice didn't cook (the chicken did, JUST), but that was with cooking it for about double the time stated on the recipe. Tastes alright, but not happy that it hasn't cooked twice :(

I made this tonight and like Celina it took ages to cook,would of been over an hour.I must admit that it was quite bland but I was starving by the time it was served.Hubby didnt like it nor did my grand daughter.Im wondering if the skin was left on that it may have more flavours..any suggestions.Thanks

YUK! Made this tonight and it looked good but, boy, it tasted disgusting. Also the rice did not cook properly and we cooked it for a bit longer than recipe said. All 4 of us thought it was horrible. Sorry!
