Use 8.75oz no salt chicken stock + water to make 1 1/2 cups. Cut the beans to 1/2 to 3/4 can.. Drained. Trim the skin, and any pockets of fat from the thighs. Drain some of the fat (only need about 2tb of fat for rice) I found it easier to mix the stock,sauce & caldo before adding it to the pan.. To build flavor, Brown the chicken, and toast the rice.. Also, bring the sauce to a boil BEFORE adding the chicken back to the pan! Then turn it down to a simmer. And don't open the lid for 20 minutes!!! Oh, if you like your rice on the dry side. Turn the heat OFF. let it sit for 4-5 minutes extra..Heat on, it will burn.... After reading the reviews on this dish, I think a step or two has been missed.. Your browning the chicken 5 minutes on EACH side, plus, Cooking it for 20 minutes.. 30 minutes should be plenty for chicken if your following the recipe.

A follow-up for my review - I substitute a mild salsa for the tomato sauce...very flavorful. The rice and onions brown up best in a little butter.

After browning the chicken on medium high - pour some salsa or picante sauce over the chicken, cover and simmer on med-low heat for twenty minutes. The flavor is intensified...depending upon the salsa. The heat seems to make the salsa a little can reserve it for the adults instead of adding it to the rice and bean mixture. You can save some time (20 min) if you cook the rice mixture in a second pan...instead of sauteing the rice and onions in chicken drippings, use a little olive oil.

Try using salsa instead of the tomotoes, and add a little fajita seasoning. Instead of placing the uncooked chicken on top use cooked chicken seasoned with the adobe, cut up in small pieces. I then put the chicken, bean, rice mixture in soft taco shells. Can put cheese and sour cream on them. Very good. Five stars
