This came out well. The chicken was tender and the beans were a great addition. I used all green bell pepper as that's what I had. Also I used 1 cup salsa in place of 1 cup chicken broth-- I make a similar recipe all the time and thought this would help with flavor. Even with the salsa added I thought this still needed a bit more flavor-- the taco seasoning in this recipe could probably use some garlic powder and a few shakes of cayenne pepper. We used this for chicken soft tacos and everyone liked them. Read More

Good mix of ingredients however if you change the serving size to 3 and it calls for 2 chicken breasts this part of step 3 is irrelevant: Pour in broth ensuring chicken is just covered in liquid. 1 cup of broth does NOT "cover" 2 chicken breasts. Mine turned into a soup because I added enough to cover it. Not super flavorful either but maybe its because of the changing in serving size... Read More
