    PanNan's Note:

    A very flavorful and attractive dish. So easy if you have a large ovenproof skillet. Just transfer the whole thing from stove top to oven.

      I used boneless skinless chicken breasts because I had some that neeeded to be cooked. I didn't have any saffron so I added about 1/16 tsp of turmeric. I found it very easy, very good and the type of dish I like to make during the week after I've worked all day. Next time I prepare it I might decrease the red pepper to 1/4 tsp just to compare the difference. I may play around with it and add more tomatoes or then maybe not, however,I don't feel the recipe really needs any changes.

      This was a very tasty dish. I really thought the rice especially was very good - I did use saffron but reduced the heat by cutting the cayenne by half (I was serving to a child). It baked up rich and tender and was very attractive. The chicken was also quite flavorful, although I think the 20 minute browning time was a bit too long - some pieces were a little too dry. Next time, I would probably cut the browning time in half. I also wished the peas had been cooked with the rice - they remained colorful by adding them at the end, but didn't have the rich flavors of the other veggies that had been cooked with the rice. Still, this was very enjoyable and was enjoyed by all tasters.

      Very nice! This is filling and great one dish meal with all of the veggies. Very colorful presentation too, and a little kick from the cayenne pepper. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
