Very tasty. Lots of flavors I like. However, it was too sticky. I hadn't rinsed the rice but will make sure I do next time to take that extra starch away.

I made this and wasn't impressed - the flavor was very good but the texture was that of playdoh - not light and fluffy.

This recipe turned out kind of bland. Also, don't try to cook it on the stove instead of a crock pot. For most things it works, not this one.

I don't have a crock pot so I cooked this in the microwave oven. It is good, and I would serve it again.
