Wow - This recipe is awesomely yummy! I made a few changes like adding 1/2 pkg Pace taco seasoning into the flour the chicken is dredged in (I also put a little into the rice mixture), only used 1 can black beans (this is to compromise with my non-bean loving husband) and cutting back on the tomatoes (for my non-tomato loving daughter). I used white basmati rice instead of the rice mix. I served with a little grated Colby-Jack melted on top. Thanks so much for this recipe, I'd give it 10 stars if I could!
This is fabulous! Made it for dinner tonight with a few changes and it is a new family favorite. Very easy 1 skillet recipe! I agree with those who cubed chicken for easy cooking/serving. We didn't have the exact ingredients and wanted to halve the recipe so we used corn with peppers/Mexicorn diced tomatoes with jalapeno (for a little kick) no green chiles just 1 can of black beans and 2 very large chicken breasts. This fed 2 adults 2 servings and we have just under half left over.
This recipe is delish! Made exactly as stated except used green pepper instead of red. Tastes like a restaurant recipe! Even better the days after. My husband wouldn't have given it 5 stars but he's not a veggie guy. =( The only thing I wish I'd have known was how HUGE a batch this made. It's not for "just the two of us" unless you both love it and could eat it for a few days.
Totally delicious! Fiancee went back for seconds. He said it was 'totally awesome'. I only used two chicken breast halves cut into bite size pieces. I also only used 1/2 cup frozen corn. Other than that I followed the recipe as is. This does make a ton of food though. Be prepared for leftovers unless you're a family of 6 good eaters. We're planning on putting this in tortillas with salsa tomorrow. Excellent easy dinner!
Good recipe. Substituted brown rice for the yellow rice. Had to cook a bit longer and add a little more chicken broth. Just diced my chicken breast and sauted in a little olive oil. Didn't dredge in flour.Good filling and pretty healthy. will make again. thanks!
Before I mention how delicious this recipe is a word about yellow rice. Here in Florida yellow rice is almost a staple but if you can't find it just mix some saffron or saffron seasoning to the dry rice -- there is your yellow rice. I always have to thank the reviewers. Based on their suggestions I seasoned the chicken with Beau Monde salt and pepper and garlic and cut the chicken into pieces after browning and didn't dredge the chicken in flour. I omitted the cayenne; we like spice but it doesn't like us. I also added cumin and a small amount of curry powder. I used a trinity mix from Publix (onion green peppers and celery) instead of just chopped onions. I think they call that the "holy trinity" in Louisiana cooking. Wonderful! I listed it as a favorite in my database.
excellent recipe and very easy to make. i found it to be very flavorful and healthy too. i used brown rice to make it didn't bother dredging the chicken and only added one can of pinto beans as i halved the recipe. omitted the cayenne and added a dash of cumin. no unnecessary fats and plenty of protein and good carbs. my kids and hubby loved it.
My brother and I cooked this last night for our parents and it was DELICIOUS! I pretty much followed the recipe exactly except for exchanging green pepper for red since that's what we already had around. The cilantro and the green chilies really gave it a wonderful flavor. It was so easy to make even a total novice chef like me didn't mess it up! I am totally going to make this again and again! Thanks!
Made this last night - kids didn't like - husband thought OK. It was way better the next day. Melted shredded cheddar cheese on top and added sour cream - delicious! Brought the left overs to work. Co-workers are asking for recipe. I cubed the chicken instead of using whole breast. Makes it easier to serve.
