Should've doubled this! I really loved it... some other picky family members weren't impressed. I did make a few changes - omitted the celery and mushrooms. Sauteed some mushrooms separately since I'm the only one that likes them. Served with steamed green beans. Yum!

Really loved it, and will make it again! What I loved especially was how the rice (I used ordinary long-grained) came out: sort of completely cooked, but al dente, as the Italians say. The dish was very tasty. On the chicken pieces -- I used thighs, because I had that available -- I sprinkled a sea salt spiced with lime, chilli pepper and coriander (the ground seed). That gave just that extra oomph! So basically I used no substitutions, but because I put it in my smaller, less reliable oven (I have 2 wall ovens) I baked it about 15 mins longer. Janeydoe, this was lovely. It rates 4 1/2 stars in my book.
