This is REALLY good!!! The ingredient & steps list seem long but it's not difficult to make at all. I added the chicken marinade to the dish & am very glad I did! YUM! The rice on the bottom gets crispy & wonderful. 1.5lbs of chicken thighs was only 4. Next time I will .use a bigger pan to accommodate more chicken. I used a 4quart Dutch oven.
