      Great recipe. I prepared it essentially as written except that I cooked it in my rice cooker, measuring the chicken broth to match its requirements for teh amount of rice. Served with a great lamb dish (Maple and Apple Braised Lamb Shoulder Chops) and everyone was happy. I'll use this a lot. Thank you!

      This was very simple to make and smelled wonderful while it was cooking. I may reduce the liquid/cook time some what as it went a bit past creamy to almost mushy. I also reduced the lemon at the end but the lemon taste was still rather overpowering; I think cutting it in half would work well. This has a lot of potential with some minor adjustments and I'm sure we'll be making it again. Thanks so much for posting!
