This dish had good flavor. I think it would benefit from adding less stock so that the rice isn't over expanded into mush.
very filling and like dishes that have turkey meat in them ,but i think this could very easily be a vegaterian dish by subbing chicken stock for veggie stock good stuff zaar tour 6
