Good flavor but had a hard time getting the rice done. Suggest putting it in the whole time.

could chicken breast be used instead of thighs?

Yes, you could use chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs without changing the cooking time. Enjoy!

This recipe is fantastic, but I use a pressure cooker.
