      I can't think of how it could be better. Although maybe I'd cut up the chicken so it would cook faster. We loved this, the flavor was more complex than most casseroles.

      A wonderful dish! One I'll be making often. I did not bake it but simmered the entire dish in a covered skillet on my stovetop. I also did not add any cheese, it was very moist and extremely favorful without. I also made my own saffron rice so I could control the salt using Basmati uncooked rice, chicken broth and several saffron strands. Shawn in suburban Chicago

      This is the first time I have made a saffron rice dish and I am hooked! Very inventive and tasty recipe. I omitted the black beans and replaced with corn (personal preference). I found it easy to make and very good.
