This was delicious! I used EVOO instead of the butter. I added a minced garlic clove and seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper while I sautéed it. I didn't remove the chicken before cooking the rice either I just cooked it all together. Also a quick note about the recipe itself it should read that the milk is replacing the water or to omit the water in the package directions. I'm not a novice cook so I already know that but to someone who doesn't have a lot of cooking experience I could see them adding both the milk and water the way it is written. This was so easy and delicious and I will be making this again! Read More

I have to say for a quick Monday night dinner this didn t disappoint. It tasted a bit sweet but I am sure it was due to the packaged rice. I doubled the recipe and 4 cups of milk was just right. Read More

I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. No changes I think it might benefit from a little bit of garlic next time. Read More

Overall I thought this was pretty good I just felt it needed some salt and pepper and maybe a little acid (like a touch of lemon juice). It came together really quickly and I liked that I was able to just add some additional ingredients to come up with something a little different for dinner. Next time I think I'm going to try artichokes instead of peas. Read More

It was good the only thing I would change is using 2 cups of milk. I would use only 1 cup of milk instead. I found it watery and I had to let the milk evaporate. Otherwise it was a simple recipe with few ingredients. Read More
