I absolutely Love THIS DISH! So does my family. My fiance is Guatemalan and I like to find things to cook for him that are authentic to remind him of home, since he hasn't been there in so long. It is so good and simple, came out perfect from the directions. I was out of pimento pepper this time and added pickled jalapeno instead and it was great. Thanks for the recipe! This is the best one I've found.
The flavor in this dish was really good, but the cooking time took a lot longer than stated. We ended up eating a late dinner, but luckily this was tasty enough to be worth the wait.
Very delicious dish and great presentation! I used chicken thighs as we love dark meat. I like the idea of finishing this dish off in the oven -- it stayed really nice and moist. We garnished this dish with the pimento and some cilantro sprigs; however, I did leave off the egg slices and parmesan. Will definitely make this dish again! Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, January, 2012.
This is truly outstanding. Very flavorful and made with things I usually always have on hand. The only problem I had was that with the 1 tsp of oil ask for to make 2 servings wasn't enough to keep the chicken from sticking. Next time I'll use a spray of Pam under the oil. If you are a bit less lazy than I was and have the veggies all prepped in advance this will flow smoothly and quickly. This is so good it's going into my All Time Fav's book! :D
Oh my, this is delicious! DH was two bites in when he stopped to declare "this one's a 5!" I used chicken thighs, olive oil, and a mix of brown and white rice as it was what I had on hand. I was slightly concerned about getting the brown rice cooked all the way since it generally takes longer, but that wasn't a problem. I also forgot to add the salt and pepper after cooking the chicken, and to be honest my chicken broth was salty enough that we didn't miss the salt and were able to add pepper at the table. I also skipped the garnishes and this was still a 10 star recipe. Thanks so much for posting!
This dish would be a real family pleaser. I added a little more liquid as my rice was a bit crunchy, but I think that may be because my lid was not very tight. I added some extra peas and left off the pimentos. Thank you Marra!
