This is delicious! It takes very little time to put together and cook. I didn't have my meal timed right and the rice was done 45 minutes too soon. Despite that, it was perfect! Not sticky at all. I made no changes to this recipe at all. This is a new favorite recipe!

This is a great 5 star recipe. Made it twice and just follow the recipe. No need to change a thing. Lots of flavor and will be making this often. Also made it for a friend and she loved it also. Thanks for the recipe, definitely a keeper.
