REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating

Incredibly easy! The chicken was tender and the rice was perfectly done. Stir in your favorite veggies and seasonings. I used frozen peas and carrots and dried thyme, a pinch of cumin, and sprinkled paprika on the chicken

Remove the chicken skin or it will get greasy. Good otherwise.
