    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a quick and easy recipe to use up an leftover chicken, this is also good with leftover turkey too. For brilliant yellow rice sub 1/2 teaspoon tumeric for the saffron if desired! Adjust all the amounts (except the rice and liquids) to taste.

      Delicious! Fairly sure I made this as written, think I threw in some extra veg that needed using. One of the things I love about these sorts of dishes is that you can add a few things without taking away from the final result. Thanks for sharing.

      I made this recipe with Vigo yellow rice instead of long grain rice. I did not use all of the additional spices, since that rice is already flavored. It was delicious! I will make this again and can't wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow.

      I have to this was really easy to make and was a satisfying meal that my family enjoyed. We served this with a side salad and had enough leftovers to feed another 3-4 servings. This will certainly be a regular on our dinner table.
