I haven't tried this one yet, but thought it was interesting for the Zaar World tour to France.

My husband and I really enjoyed this, we removed as much skin and fat as possible from the chicken. We also cooked the rice separately and added it in about 1 hour before serving. The veggies were delicious. Next time I will debone the chicken first, b/c I didn't really like bones that were hanging around in there after the meat fell away. But overall, very tasty.
