    After reading the comments, I used a ton of garlic (did not measure) and extra tablespoon of ginger. I did use ginger from a jar, not pickled. I also used sesame oil to fry the chicken instead of olive oil so that it wouldn't just be "Asian style". I, too, increased the rice, chicken broth, and pieces of chicken for fear it would not be enough. In the end, it was like the arroz y caldo my family makes. Good stuff.

    Agree everybody...really, really bland. But a great recipe to build on. Absolutely double the garlic and ginger...and after it finishes cooking in the oven, pull out the chicken and stir around 2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce into the rice. It really kicks up the flavour. Also the recipe says it serves 4...hmmm...the men in my life would look at one chicken thigh and go "Really?" Suggest adding 4 legs to total 8 pieces...there's enough room in a large Dutch oven.

    Beige in colour, beige in taste..the basic recipe was solid, cooking times on point, rice was cooked, chicken tender but overall -too bland. The flavors did not pop. I will make again ,but will fiddle with it. More garlic/ginger, definitely s&p or maybe some romano mixed in at the end, peas or asparagus for colour and texture(green parts of scallions not enough) ,cremini ,portobellos or or very small uncut button mushrooms...good base recipe to start from.

    Seriously easy and delicious. I made it on the stove instead of the oven. I also used regular mushrooms... It's all I had and jasmine rice. Used coconut oil also. Oh man it was awesome!!!

      @lisak30: how long did you have to cook the chicken on the stove, instead of the oven? Thanks.
