      A keeper! The rice is amazing, absolutely delicious and fresh. I did add salt and some black pepper to it, which I think it needs. And I didn't use the full amount of lemon - maybe half the amount, squeezing from a fresh lemon. I guessed on the tomatoes (because I'm no good at estimating weight) and would say that 4 medium sized ones is a good amount for this recipe, chopped very finely. I never worry about peeling them, and it's always fine :). I used basmati rice instead of long-grain, next time I'll try long grain - basmati grains stay separated well, but I think long grain will be nice too. Only 1 problem, hence the missing star: the chicken itself is not very flavorful. Next time, I'll probably marinate it in the lemon juice and oregano with salt and pepper.
