Couple questions:

1) Using cutlets instead of chicken parts, how do you prevent them from getting horribly overcooked?

2) What variety of long grain do you use? I've done this dish with Basmati, but it took a lot more than 30 minutes of simmering to get it cooked all the way (which is why I suggest to cooks trying this for the first time to stick with the more traditional medium or short-grain rice like Arborio)

Paella cheats
basically you can cheat with your chicken cutlets. This is the authentic recipe on how filipinos cook it. But you can add the chicken cutlets at the end just before your bellpeppers. Or you can use bigger cuts, which will take time cooking.

I usually use Jasmin, arborio is too sticky. You can use the korean rice as well.
