I was a bit disappointed that the rice didn't fully cook. Still 5*, because the flavor more than made up for it. I think it needs 50 min. in step 7.

Very tasty. I tried the suggestion of 45 minutes - that worked for us. This is definitelyy a welcome addition to my repretoire of turkey leftover recipes. Thanks!

I don't know who or what LHJ is - but this was another good way to finish off the bird! I tried 50 minutes for step 7 as suggested by Evewitch but the rice was too mushy - perhaps the next person could try 45 minutes. Thanx Bev!
