    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a very tasty chicken dish, and easy to throw together. I have made this for myself and DH, so it will serve 2-3 hungry people, it's the perfect meal for a smaller family. This whole dish is prepared in an extra large frypan on top of stove, but if desired you may place the frypan in the oven (at 325 degrees) to cook the rice and chicken, just be certain to use an oven-safe frypan with lid. If you do not have a large enough frypan, just use a non-stick larger size pot. Although I have only prepared this recipe using the stated amounts, I am guessing that this may be doubled successfully, maybe 2 cups rice with 5 cups of broth, with 2 cans of diced tomatoes.

      This is good; didn't seem to have a lot of flavor, so I added some Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil seasoning. I didn't have any capers, so didn't use them. I halved the recipe for the 2 of us, and even that made enough for 3. The smaller amount didn't take as long to cook, either.
