Delicious, and fun to make. I followed the recipe pretty closely, with one major exception. Because it's currently a cold winter in the NE US, I had to "grill" indoors on my big George Forman grill....so, I used boneless chicken breasts instead of bone in. They took about 20 minutes to cook (on 375), instead of the 45 in the recipe. The family really liked the chicken, but we loved the rice. I've never made rice this way before, delicious (if more than a little decadent with all that butter! :) ). For some reason, the rice took a good 20 minutes longer than the recipe timing....I have no idea if it might have been my convection oven or perhaps my rice. I used Carolina rice which, honestly, I don't know if it is converted or not. ANYWAY, all came out wonderfully. Thanks! (Reviewed for Zaar tag)
