The first time I cooked this dish, I followed the directions and wasn't too impressed. I had the idea to grill the chicken and in a separate pot cook the veggies. I cooked Spanish rice in a separate pot as well and then sliced the grilled chicken into strips. I then tossed all components together. Turned out excellent!
I used an extra cup of water because the rice seemed to need more liquid, but still was a very tasty recipe. A suggestion: use one diced, very hot jalepeno instead of the red pepper. I did and it tasted great!

Caramel and cake. The subtle sweetness of the pound cake combined with the browned butter and toasty sugar flavor in the caramel sauce icing creates a dessert well worth the time to make it.
