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.

This was delicious! I ended up cutting the chicken into bite size pieces and baked it for about 20 minutes and then followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Served it with tortilla chips. This will definitely be made again!

This is VERY GOOD! I love saffron rice anyway and that's why I tried this recipe. Made it just as recipe directed, except had to use lemon juice insted of lime and only had a 3qt dish available. It all turned out good!

Really yummy and flavorful! I used two large chicken breasts and had to cook them for about 10 more minutes. I think this could be quicker by slicing the raw chicken into strips but would also be good with chopped cooked chicken. Tortillas on the side would be tasty. Thanks, Chris, for another keeper!

Very very good! I used the stewed tomatoes, and topped with low fat Monterey Jack cheese. Very easy! Another Keeper.

Sooooo yummy!! However, instead of leaving the chicken whole after cooking, I shredded the chicken and mixed it with the other ingredients before baking. I also poured the drippings that were left in the pan with the rice and other ingredients. It turned out GREAT!!!

I made this for dinner last night and it was fantastic! The only changes I made was to cut the chicken into bite sized pieces, I used fire roasted diced tomatoes, garlice powder instead of fresh, (i forgot, and just mixed the powder in with the rice and tomaotes) and added a little emril's seasoning. We all loved it including my 4 year old who can be picky at times.
Thanks for posting!
