Notes

**Recipe makes a lot of rice. You might not like the ratio of rice to chicken and vegetables. You can double the chicken and vegetables and sauce if you see the need. (I haven't tried halving the rice, but it should work too!)
**Rice can also be made in a rice cooker, add all ingredients to a rice cooker and cook with "white rice" option.
