i liked the diced chicken idea quite a bit and the recipe is a tasty one but i can't help but wonder how much harder it would be to just add garlic cumin and onion to uncooked rice and go from there to avoid the stuff in the envelope like preservatives. Read More

A good dish for the weeknights. I had too much liquid at the end so I recommend draining the canned tomatoes. Read More

This was a great recipe. I used Zataran's spanish rice mix can of diced toms can of Rotel butter and 2 chicken breasts cut up. I thought two were plenty and I cooked them before adding it to the mix. I also wanted it to have more rice so it would be more filling. I added 1 cup of cooked brown rice and glad I did. I didn't use the salsa because I didn't have any and the Rotel is pretty much the same thing anyways. I ended up adding about a teaspoon of cumin and half teaspoon of cajun seasoning. The kids said it was a little spicy but they went back for seconds so it must not have been that spicy to them. I thought it was great! We have a family of four and this fed us all with a little bit left over. I couldn't think of what else to make with it for a side dish so just ate it alone. Read More

I made this for dinner last night and my husband and I LOVED it! So easy and flavorful! My husband won't eat diced tomatos so I left them out. I added another chicken breast some onions (I used the frozen kind - super easy!) and a few jalapenos. Yum yum - tastes great with tortilla chips!:) Read More

Thanks Sharon for this recipe! It turns out great everytime. It's one of those timeless recipes that I can always rely on when I don't have a lot of time to make a meal. My husband loves it and requests it frequently. The only thing I change occasionally is to add more chicken (2 breasts total). This is definitely a winner. Read More
