      I took this to a group function and everyone loved it! They were scraping the bottom of the pan to get more.

      This is very tasty. I have made it many times by now and the only change I make is substituting the chicken stock cube with Maggi vegetable stock with onion cubes(since we are vegetarians).

      This was sooooooo good. I have been looking for a recipie forever that both my boyfriend and me could agree on, this was it. I always hate it when someone is reviewing a recipie and puts in that they changed this oand that, but now I am going to be one of those people. I did make a couple changes. I used Spicy Hot V-8 in place of the tomato juice and I cut back on the rice by 1/4 C. and replaced it with some thin spagetti broken in small pieces (vermecelli) and I also added some chopped fresh cilantro. It was the best ever, I am not even looking for another recipie anymore.
