I prepared this recipe tonight and, wow, is this good!! I followed the recipe exactly and made no changes and we gobbled it down. Needless to say, we will be having this recipe again. Absolutely delicious and so easy I would even serve it to company it is so good. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home.

A little salty and a little soggy, nxt time I'll use a little less broth. Very good tho!

About to make this a second time in one week! Hubby loved it. I didn't have the soup mix so I subbed a spoonful of chicken soup base, but I bet some chicken boullion granules would work too. Didn't have pimentos either, but this was so good they were not missed!

So easy and quick! My husband had thirds of this rice. I did add a small amount of green and red pepper because my husband loves them. Next time I am leaving them out because I'm sure this doesn't need them. I served it with fish. I wouldn't hesitate to make this for company.

This recipe is incredibly good! We use it all the time and pair it with the lemon grilled salmon recipe.
