I learned this dish while in France - I use rice that comes prepackaged with the spices, but you can use plain rice and saffron to do the trick. I also sometimes throw shrimp in at the last minute.

Wonderful flavorful goodness. I used mahatma "spicy" yellow rice so I left out the jalapeno. I over did the thyme a bit ( my fault I got over zealous with the spices I used fresh thyme and rosemary) but it was still phenomenal. I cooked the whole dinner in one big skillet. Cooked the pork chops (didn't use chicken) in the skillet put them aside cooked the veggies til soft then threw in the herb/spices for a few minutes then added the rice with the seasoning packet and the water covered for ten minutes added pork chops and peas then covered for another 15 minutes.....perfection in a pan!! Don't omit the cloves in fact all the spices work together for a wonderful combo and don't omit the squeeze of lemon at the end it adds a freshness and flavor thats delish. If your'e not used to using these herbs give this a try it will make a believer out of you. Read More

This is pretty good but I think a different sauce is needed. Chili sauce is ok but my husband thought that maybe a green sauce would actually be better. Will probably try again with changes. Read More

This was easy to fix and tasted really good. I loved that I was able to fix it all in just 1 skillet. I didn't have the pork so I tossed in some bacon (it's just cured pork) for the flavor. I used dried onion and herbs instead of fresh and we skipped the jalapeno and chile at end. I used boneless chicken and sprinkled it with some Season All before cooking it. I only used a pinch of clove since DH doesn't like it and I forgot to squeeze the lemon over. Thanks I'll fix this again. Read More

Oh my my! My family gave this a rating of 10 stars! I made this with just the chops. I didn't use cloves (didn't have any) and I used dried rosemary & thyme. I also used Trader Joe's Melange a Tois julienned frozen bell peppers and frozen peas. For the rice I used Zatarain's Yellow Rice. I omitted the jalapenos & chili sauce and forgot to squeeze lemon over the dish! It didn't matter - this dish was so flavorful I cannot wait to make it again! Thank you! Read More
