So delicious! I halved the butter and oil, and I still adore this dish.

Made this last night. I added a roasted red pepper and zucchini. I also used fresh oregano. It was very yummy and will now be added to our dinnier list as it was easy to make and very easy to alter.

Quick, easy and so yummy. I cooked the rice in chicken broth to add more flavor. Of course, this renders the dish no longer vegetarian but does add a wonderful touch to the dish.

I really enjoyed this unique rice recipe, DH wasn't a fan. He didn't like the texture of the rice and chickpeas together. I would make it again for me and use less butter and add some veggies like mushrooms, onion and zucchini and serve it as a main dish. I think the recipe could be very flexible. Thanks for posting.

This was just ok. Strange mix of flavors, but I wanted to give it a try since everyone gave it such good reviews. Won't be making this again. We got rid of the leftovers, just not worth saving it. :/

I follow this recipe to the nose except for the salt as my husband has high blood pressure. It was absolutely amazing and will be a regular staple in my household.

We love this dish. I always add nearly a whole bunch of fresh asparagus, and a little extra cheese. I make this at least once a month. Before this dish I had never eaten chickpeas, except in hummus, and now I eat them all the time!

Loved it! I made it as written, and then added sweet red pepper, green onion, and zucchini. Next time, I'll Also add mushrooms and maybe even shrimp. This is a great base recipe on which to build.
