This was really, really good. However, I would drastically cut back on the salt. Definitely taste test first before adding. MAYBE 1 teaspoon, if at all.

I had One Hour to make dinner and this dish was just beautiful. I added only 1 cup of chicken stock instead of two. Delicious dish and can be tweaked to suit everyone's preferences.
