  1. This was excitingly different! Very great tasting recipe! I added raisins and can probably add cranberries also for a slight change to this! Wonderfully good~! Our 4 yr. old Daughter liked it also!
  2. This is a GREAT recipe! I made it for supper last night and my husband and I both loved it. I used three chicken breasts instead of six; I think using six would require a little more rice and perhaps more of the spice mixture. Also, I had to increase the cooking time by 15 to 20 minutes in order to bring the rice to the right consistency. Otherwise, PERFECT recipe. It is already a favorite of ours!
  3. we really liked this recipe. thanks for the great food!
  4. Quick, easy and very tasty, made exactly as recipe stated and it turned out very nicely. Good one pot cooking recipe, very handy to have on file. Thanks for posting xx
  5. Sorry, but we didn't like this dish. The chicken was tasty but the rice wasn't. I used brown rice. I think that the orange juice made the rice too sweet for my taste.Sorry!
