Excellent blend of ingredients!. We loved it with the rice and will have it again.

Wow this recipe makes a lot of food. The oregano and lemon juice were a little overpowering, I would reduce them by half. When I re-heated some left-overs I added some hot italian sausage that I had pre-cooked - it was a marriage made in heaven!!

It's between three and four stars, really. Easy to make and good tastin'. It's stick-to-your-ribs stuff, it's like chicken paella, and that's pretty good. I am glad I made it, I will make it again, it will be my lunch for the next three weeks.
