Chicken and Yellow Rice.. HELP!!! HELP!!! HELP!!!

Every time I make chicken and yellow rice it messes up. I boil a whole chicken and then debone it. I take two bags of family size yellow rice (vigo). I bring 10 cups of my chicken stock to a boil and then add my rice. I cook for a 1 min then add my chicken and cover. I turn the heat down to simmer (side note if it matters it's a gas stove) and cook for 35 min. The rice is always hard and mushy. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG? I have no problems with white rice but my husband loves the yellow. Any tips?

Thanks for the replies! We had a great time! Must say Garbo's fish and shrimp taco's were AMAZING! That place is a must when down there. Also had breakfast at Pepe's food was great! You gotta chat up the boat guy next door while there. Had an early dinner at El Siboney. It had good food. Also went to Kelly's Carribean. The food was mediocre at best. Kermit's key lime pie was good. But hands down the food highlight was Garbo's.
