Really awesome dish. The wife and I loved it. Only thing I would like to point out is you can't cook brown rice in 25 minutes..just doesn't work. Had to cook this for at least 45 minutes and even then the rice came out a bit hard some spots. Would probably work a lot better with white rice and maybe some chicken stock for flavoring.
