    *Marli*'s Note:

    This chicken is great because you throw it all together in a pot & let it cook until the chicken is so tender, it's almost falling off the bone. Remove skin from chicken before cooking for a healthier dish.

      Made as directed and LOVED it! FYI...green capsicum is a green bell pepper. I used plain rice because I didn't have arborio or paella rice and it came out a little softer than I liked. But everyone thought it was delish!

      This was a very easy dish to prepare. I loved it and so did my fiancee. The only change that I would make (and did) is right at the simmer stage I chopped up some garlic and wished I added a smidge of hot sauce. Also, I did have sweet paprika, and used Emril's southwest essense, which I highly reccommend. All in all a great dish.

      Excellent! All I had was boneless chicken thighs & they turned out great! I used chicken broth in place of water & added some Spanish olives @ the end! Oh this recipe is so good'
