This sounds amazing and perfect for this time of year, I have never used a pressure cooker before, but am sure you can adapt to a slow cooker or regular oven

This sounds delicious. I really like rice dishes but I am a bit boring about it and just serve it on the side of a meal rather than making it the main ingredient.

I think i will give this a go, I am sure it will be popular with us all x

What a tasty combo that sounds like, I don’t think I’d have thought to put chicken actually in the rice, but it sounds yummy x
