The first reviewer changed the type of chicken, changed the type of rice, which was very specific, and then rated it low. Absurd review. Read More

I only had boneless chicken thighs so the chicken wasn't as tender. I used Better Than Bouillon instead of chicken broth.I didn't have the Parmesan rice so I used jasmine rice and added parmesan. Perhaps this was the reason I wasn't crazy about the recipe. The rice was quite gummy but it may have been my substitution. The recipe just seemed to need something more. Read More

I followed the recipe to the word except I didn’t have infused rice so used jasmine and added in Parmesan and extra butter. Everything was great until the final steam step to cook the broccoli, I got the burn message and rice burnt to the bottom. I’d make again but steam the broccoli separately while the chicken/rice are cooking. Read More

This was nice and it actually got my fussy 9 year old eating rice and chicken which is always a plus. I was out of broccoli because the family had cooked it up for dinner the night before, so I served with cauliflower instead. I think the broccoli would have been better. My only criticism is that this make a lot of rice - I would probably just add 3/4 of a cup next time. Great recipe though, will use again. Read More
