    Bill Hodgkins's Note:

    This recipe came from Rachael Ray on the Cooking Channel and is so good. Just a couple of notes... The original recipe calls for 1/4 cup golden raisins, (Yuck!). I leave them out because I hate raisins.. It also calls for 1 cup each of white wine and chicken stock; this made it way too wet, suggest cutting down to about a half cup of each, or leave out the water or the wine depending on your taste, to make a better gravy consistency. And... The rice is awesome, but simple.

      Bill, this was GREAT! I used skinless bone-in thigh cutlets as I prefer them to breasts, and took note and reduced the liquids to 1 cup in total. I did use the sultanas (golden raisins) and although I'm not too fond of them, they really gave a nice contrast of sweetness to the salty olives in the sauce. As they plumped up, I added another 1/4 cup of water to the sauce. In the ingredients, you mention Spanish onions coarsely chopped-I took this to mean Spanish olives as they are mentioned in the method. I also slipped a teaspoon of Spanish smoked paprika into the recipe, which gave a wonderful, but subtle smokey flavour. This is a truly wonderful recipe.

      Really good recipe. Sweet and salty. I think I probably doubled the amount of raisins because my husband loves them so much.
