Sub chicken thighs for breast. Thighs are more flavorful. Also, remember to discard any clams & mussels that have NOT opened after 10 minutes of steaming.

Excellent basic recipe. I make this for may family at Christmas and have modified the recipe over the years. Substitute thighs for breast is a good idea - not as dry; try chorizo if you like a little spice; found that clams and mussels have different cook times - be aware of this; have tried adding calamari (excellent); have also added chopped clams to rice mixture - adds excellent flavor.
