    Very nice! This is filling and great one dish meal with all of the veggies. Very colorful presentation too, and a little kick from the cayenne pepper. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8

    Great, easy recipe. I love cooking chicken and rice together. I thought the flavors were great and enjoyed the addition of saffron. My family really liked this recipe. Made for ZWT8 Spain. Thank you!

    We really enjoyed this for our dinner last night. I used 4 chicken quarters (leg/thigh) and doubled the rice and chicken stock. I just seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper to our tastes and left out the cayenne pepper. Just loved how moist and tender the chicken turned out and the rice was so nicely flavored from the peppers and veggies. I served this with recipe#473755 and some Cuban bread. Made for the "Pick A Pepper" challenge for ZWT8.
