“This is one of my staples and it is often requested. There is a lot of garlic in this, but it does not overpower. Served with good bread and a salad, it can't be beat. I use the packaged Vigo yellow rice mix for ease. Also, because this cooks for awhile, use either chicken thighs, legs or quarters to keep from drying out. Find the whole garlic cloves and spread them on your bread. I use a paella pan with a lid or you can use a casserole dish that you cover with foil.”
