pds, I am going to try this recipe tonight, but I had a question about it. After all the liquid is absorbed and the rice is cooked why do you continue to keep cooking for another hour covered? Isn't all the flavor already absorbed into the rice and chicken?

Cuz... that's how my mil told me to do it lol...

There's still some liquid left after boiling and the rice still seems undone to me..so we cook it longer. If you like it more liquidy ( is that a word??) you can lower the cooking time.

A cinnamon quill and/or bay leaf in there wouldn't go astray if your aiming for Greek either.
