Sorry, but this just didn't work when increased. What kind of rice do you use? The chicken is all pallid and bland as a result of being poached. The chicken was done in 45 minutes, then I turned the heat up to 425 for another 45 minutes to finish the rice, and in spite of using half the lemon stated in the recipe, the rice was still very strongly flavored, the kids loved it, husband wouldn't eat it.

This was really easy and really good! I used a dry white wine and Jasmine rice which came out perfect with just a slight crust/texture, and the chicken was moist. Adding this recipe to my favorites!

Loved it! My partner loved it too but would like to sear the chicken a bit first. Also I was thinking that the saugy rice issue might have to do with adding the meat marinade to the rice which would be too much moisture for the rice to cook properly. Cheers!

Agreed with the previous comment, the rice was a bit strong, but LOL only after you add a bit of salt! Boyfriend likes it alot! Definite keeper!

I just made this for my husband and myself. I doubled the recipe and used white basmati rice and sauvignon blanc wine along with organic dried basil in my rendition. It's very flavorful and was a big hit with both my hubby and myself. It's so easy to prepare, but it tastes like I spent hours cooking. This dish is excellent!

Well, I tripled this dish to make enough for my family, and I have to say that the lemon and basil taste were way too strong. I think it had a lot of potential and next time I will use maybe enough lemon and basil for two instead of three. The chicken turned out GREAT! but the rice was entirely toooooo strong. BUT I definitly think that it will be great if I use less lemon and basil and I will definitly make this again. THANKS!

This was great! very refreshing to find chicken and rice without all the "cream of" soups. I didn't have any wine on hand so I used chicken stock. I will definitely be making this again, I may add some sort of vegetable at some point. Good stuff

This dish was too quick and easy to taste that wonderful! I experimented on the third run of this dish...Instead of wine I mixed heavy whipping cream with water and threw in some canned fire roasted peppers and capers. Absolutley delicious!

Thank you for this easy and tasty recipe! I used chicken stock instead of the wine and a pre-made rub for the chicken, and it tasted delicious.
