This was a healthy and easy recipe but I won't be adding it to my regular recipes. My husband would not eat it. My friends loved it. I thought it was pretty good but not good enough to make it on a regular basis. One suggestion I do have is that if you make it soak the rice for a while in hot water to help soften it up before cooking. Otherwise the rice takes FOREVER to soften... Read More

This recipe was very easy and (for us) on the bland side. I might have added some green chile or cayenne pepper for a little bit more zing. Read More

I only thought this 4 stars after the following changes: used extra virgin olive oil instead of vegetable oil. used 3 shallots instead of onion. used fresh carrots green beans 1 green pepper and potatoes. chop potato and carrot small to shorten cooking time. used two cans of rotel instead of tomato (included juice from the cans). added garlic powder mix (Johnny's Garlic Spread) and more sea salt & cracked black pepper. added chicken bouillon (Knorr brand). used quinoa instead of rice. chop chicken into small bite-sized pieces. top w/ shredded cheddar! it was DELICIOUS! the boyfriend and i really loved it. we found it to be comforting warm hearty and yummy. easy recipe for summer or winter time.

This recipe was actually better than I thought it would be. I will definatly make it again but add a few more spices. My 8 year old liked the chicken cheese and rice but didn't care for the tomatoes. Read More

Excellent dish... I made the modification of using a chicken flavored "rice side" package instead of plain white rice and italian style canned tomatoes. This is now in the rotation of meals to make on a continuing basis... Read More

I found this recipe on a night where i emptied my fridge and was like "what can i make with chicken sweet potatoes tomatoes and string beans?" I was really not expecting much and was just happy to use what I already had on hand. I was so surprised. When I dished myself up a plate I did my ususal "OK I'm not going to have 2nds." but I totally wanted more (and I did... i have no will power). I love this recipe because I didn't really have to measure anything - just tossed the ingredients in and simmered. I did do some things differently (not because I didn't trust the author) - I used sweet potatoes instead if regular (bc it's what I had) pre-marinated chicken breasts (new perdue product) fresh tomato (bc it's what i had) mahatma rice (ditto) and i added some cayenne. I think the cayenne and pre-marinated chicken added some extra flavor. I'll totally make it again. thank you! Read More
