Rice came out overcooked and gluey, and burned on the bottom. Followed recipe exactly.

I used chicken legs because they were on sale, eliminated the capers.actually tasted better the day after.

Very simple and easy recipe that worked very well in the Instant Pot. We have an 8 qt and should have made double. Added a jalapeño pepper and skipped the capers. Chicken came out so tender and ...

First time making this and it came out great! It was a family hit, will make it again!
