    Not bad! Very simple to make. Not sure why it needs to be made in a crock pot for 6 hours- the flavors aren't very complicated. This was a good Sunday night dinner for me.

    Quite nice! Left out carrot, peas and olives (just a taste preference on my part) and did 2C brown rice, since that's what came in the pre-steam bag. Ended up with five servings rather than four, which works very well for a week of brown bag lunches. :D

    Excellent! I too, followed Kumquat's suggestions and did not use a crockpot. I used tumeric, and made a full cup of uncooked rice. We all loved it! Thanks very much for sharing it.

    Selected RuthlessWr's recipes for Pick a Chef 2006. This is the first of her 3 recipes I will try. BF and I were extremely pleased with how this recipe turned out. I have never tried Arroz Con Pollo (before I became a vegetarian) and this was awesome! Since I don't own a crockpot, I adapted for the stovetop by reducing the stock by 1 cup, and simmered for about 15 minutes, then added rice mixture and simmered for another 5-10. I never tried converting a crockpot recipe to the stovetop before, but everything was cooked perfectly. I used saffron rather than turmeric, and I wasn't really sure whether I was supposed to measure the cup of rice before or after it was cooked, so I decided to cook 1/2 cup of uncooked rice, and that was the extent of the changes. BF had a third helping, which is almost unprecedented, but I didn't because I'm always watching my weight. Would have finished the whole thing, because it tasted so good. Very colorful too. Going into my keepers cookbook. Definitely a 5+ star recipe. Next time I make this I might add more olives. Thanks very much!
