I doubled the amount of flour mixture..it didnt seem like it would be enough for the amount of chicken we had...and turns out doubling it was just right. It was a bit spicy for my taste so maybe next time I'll keep the pepper to the original amount. This was very easy and smelled divine while cooking. I added onions and green peppers to the chicken while cooking which my boyfriend agreed was a nice touch. The nuts were also a pleasant surprise but made the dish a bit heavy on the stomach. We had a good amount left over which was great. Worth the effort! Read More

Very good!! Rubbed chicken with the spices (did double spices) and let them sit in the fridge for a few hours. Chicken turned out very moist. I used mine cold the next day on a salad and it was wonderful. Next time I will take one persons suggestion to add some bell peppers and onions into the mix. Read More

We thought this was really good. The chicken mixed well with the rice. Only thing was when the chicken cooked it stayed gooey. It was like the butter wouldn't let the flour mixture create a crust. But it still tasted great. Will def. make again. Read More

Delicious. I didn't have any nuts but I can surely see how it would add a nice savory touch. My la familia loved this dish! It's a nice change from the regular "chicken breast" meals. I can totally see how adding a hint of "this and that" can personalize the dish such as BBQ sauce or Louisiana Rub. I added green bell peppers (I would have preferred red except I didn't have any). I adore this meal and am pretty confident in it so I will most definitely be making it again this time for my ENTIRE family! Read More

I used this recipe just to make the chicken and also doubled the coating ingredients. I omitted the Spanish rice and instead served it with green vegetables on the side. My boyfriend adds hot sauce to everything and this chicken does well with the extra kick. I agree with another reviewer's comment that the chicken is also great the next day either on its own or on top of a salad. Read More
