  • Incredible!
    I made something similar today, but instead of a whole chicken, I used some frozen (homemade) stock & chicken pieces I had; also more rice, onions (which I cooked separately first to almost carmelization stage in 3T veg oil), & bag of mixed vegs (includes carrots; also green beans, peas, corn) - 1/5/19
