Did anyone else not have a problem with the rice being too wet?? I cooked it for almost twice the time and it was still mushy--almost like risotto. I'd say decrease the chicken broth to 1-1/2 cups. Otherwise the flavor was good. I also added some fresh thyme, mint, and basil at the end.

Wow! This was very easy and tasted great. I wanted something to serve with souvlaki and tsatziki and this was perfect. The flavour was very nice and the rice was fluffy and not at all sticky. I tripled this for 12 people and there was hardly a speck left!
