A very tasy meal in one dish! I followed the recipe as listed but reduced the mustard to less than half a cup, maybe to about a third of a cup and I pounded the chicken pieces. Also, next time I will add the salt to the rice before cooking and not after as in the recipe. I served this with a dish of natural yogurt on the side as there was no liquid in this dish. Thanks for a really easy dish, Dancer.
