Now, the wife likes to overcook everything. The skinless breasts don't hold up well. They are DRY. If I were to do it, I'd use de-boned thighs that have been browned in a fry pan first.
Other than the dry chicken, its a really great, quick dish. Well, more easy than quick.
That is one of my favorite one dish meals. Need to leave the skins on though and use milk in place of that water.
I made another version once that was good. I put porkchops on it and rather than the cream of chicken/mushroom I used a can of tomato soup.
Saffron rice is must when I have saffron in the house. I happen to have some right now that I picked up during the winter on a cruise. I think that is what will be eaten later today.
