I was worried about the chichen cubes being too dry, so I sprinkled them with the pepper and browned them while they were still frozen in the middle. They still got too dry. Maybe, in hindsite, I should have made the rest and cooked it for 4 hours and then added to chicken and finished cooking until the potatoes got done.
