  1. Edit my Apr 14, 03 review due to spelling. This was a nice flavor combination of lemon and garlic. There was more liquid at the end of the cooking time then was needed. So to compensate I added about 3/4 cup instant rice. I believe I'll cut back on the water the next time I make this by 1/2 cup. Everyone in the family really liked this recipe. Thanks for sharing Conni.
     
  2. I can't thank you enough for this recipe. It was just wonderful. Nice garlic taste with a hint of lemon. Definately not overpowering. I reduced the liquid as suggested by the previous reviewer and found it was not enough. Had to add some additional during the last half hour. In my crockpot it was done after cooking 6 hours on low.I will be making this often.
     
  3. Perhaps I cooked it too long, but this didn't turn out well for me. The chicken was very dry and the rice soggy. I also substituted some fat free chicken broth for the water.
     
  4. So I don't like to leave bad reviews, but this was horrible. My dad, who will literally eat anything!!!, wouldn't eat the rice in this. It as very lemony and not garlicky at all. And was the stickiest, mushiest rice I've ever seen. The chicken was edible, but I am never making this again.
     
  5. The Chicken turned out ok but the rice... The part that was actually in the water turned out too soggy and clumped together.. and the part that was out hardly cooked. But i have to give you somethin for the smell... the smell had to be the best part!!

I'm a work at home mom who loves cooking. I also have two pugs who are always more than happy to be guinea pigs when I try new dishes! I don't have that many recipes posted (YET!) but if anyone takes the time to try one of my recipes, PLEASE post an HONEST review. The onl thing I would ask, is that I'd love to know what you did or did not like about it. I'm still learning, so input is greatly appreciated!!!
