This is my most favorite thing to eat and its so easy to make. I think I must make this at least 3 times a month. I don't have saffron, but it tastes just as good without it. This is definitely a family favorite in my home!!! Thanks so much for posting this recipe...DEEEEEEEEElicious!

I used diced tomatoes in the can and make a sauce with the garlic and onions first. I also add asparagus, artichokes, green beans, and mushrooms. I make mine in the skillet the whole way cover on the stove and not in the oven. I know it's not traditional. Great recipe!

This was very tasty. I only had long grain brown rice and should have cut down on the stock, it was a little too wet. But, it made a delicious meal anyway; thanks for posting.
