I can't begin to tell you how good this was Swiss Miss. I made it for our dinner tonight with two chicken legs which I cut into thigh and drumstick. I made the full recipe other than that as I plan to take the leftover rice base to work tomorrow. The only changes I made to your recipe were to sub half the chicken stock with wine and add a pinch of saffron along with the chorizo etc. I can't believe this fantastic recipe hasn't been made before in 4 years!
