scarlet: Thanks for your tips, your version sounds delicious! I'm sure our readers will appreciate your suggestions. Blair, editor for

This sounds rather a plain tasting dish. If I made something like this, I would use some chicken base added to the water to cook the rice in or use a can of coconut milk as part of the cooking liquid. If using coconut milk, I would then season the chicken with S&P, Curry powder, and a couple dashes of Paprika. I would also serve steamed broccoli on the side.
