    I also had trouble with too much liquid consequently the rice was too firm.

    This would be a 5 for me except that I had problem with the cooking time. I had a lot of liquid at 60 mins so I put it back in the oven and watched it carefully for the next 25 mins. At that time I added the preserves and 5 mins later the almonds. The aroma and flavor is wonderful! I used yellow and red peppers, no salt and no sugar added apricot preserves. I will certainly make this again but I'll plan to give it more time or pre-cook the rice a little to give it a head start. Made for Photo Tag.

    Redsie - this is a great chicken dish! I have a recipe I have been using for years that is close to this but my kids liked yours better. I did leave out the green pepper and just used red peppers but everthing else was the same! I love how the rice is already included in this dish without me having to make a separate side. Baked perfectly in 60 minutes before topping with almonds. Tagged in 1.2.3 Hit Wonders May 2008

    Very nice chicken dish! The kids don't like peppers so I left them out, otherwise made as specified. I especially liked the flavor that the seasonings gave the rice. Enjoyed this - thanks for posting!
