The meat was moist and tender and the flavor was great. I did add a little garlic powder but I think next time I will just add a few cloves of garlic. Also a little lemon would be wonderful. I did cook it for 1 hour at the end and some of the rice was not done. I think it would be better to precook the rice and then add at the end. I will definitely make this again.
