    Pneuma's Note:

    This is a Romanian chicken dish that we love having with either bread or rice. DH would whip up a lot to last us for days so we don't need to cook much and we never get bored with it. Dried spices are used here to speed up preparation time and preparation time here assumes that the chicken has already been cut.

      This is comfort food! It's very pretty and tasty. I added an additional 1/2 cup chicken stock to make it more saucy for the rice. Also, since I used chicken breasts, I didn't plan on it cooking as long as if I'd used a cut up chicken or parts, so I cooked it about 15 minutes once everything was added. It has great flavors! This is a great and healthy family style one dish meal! Thanks, Pneuma! Made for PRMR.

      Wonderful! A simple and hearty recipe that uses ingredients I always have on hand. I increased the amount of veggies overall, so I also added a can of diced tomatoes and a bit of chicken stock to make sure everything cooked through. Just lovely - thanks for sharing.

      DH was the only one who liked this dish. I thought it tasted OK but it wasn't really to my liking. I cooked it 45 mins as stated but the potatoes weren't done. Cooking it for that long made the chicken dry & a little tough. If I was to make again I would cook the potatoes before hand then add them, cutting the cook time in half so the chicken would be juicer.
