One pan, easy to prepare, delightful to smell and eat. I throw this on when I have company coming, as I know I don't have to watch it. The recipe can be expanded easily by adding more rice, water and vegetables. It's always delicious!

Good and easy to prepare. The recipe asks for an excessive amount of pepper making the dish very hot. Had I also added the indicated 2 T of hot sauce a hole would have been burned through the pot. Glad I tasted before adding hot sauce and was able to thus prevent the dish from becoming inedible. Read More

This reminded me of chicken soup gone wrong where all the broth had evaporated. It is a one timer recipe for us. I did cut back to a quarter tsp of black pepper as recommended and instead of the hot pepper sauce I used a couple dashes of cayenne which made it peppery enough. Read More

This calls for way too much pepper! Cut the pepper to 1/2 or even 1/4 teaspoon and it'll be delicious. Read More

I didn't use the chicken in the recipe as I only needed a side for our lobster dinner last night. I used basmati rice and my own medley of vegies. The whole family enjoyed this very much Gayle! Read More

I made the vegetable version and it was the perfect side dish for my daughter's birthday dinner Grandson ate 4 large helpings. It was easy to prepare leaving my attention to the more complicated main dish. Read More

We didn't care for this very much. Sorry! I'm not sure why but the flavors just did not seem to work together. I LOVE black pepper; it's among my favorite spices. This to me is what made this even possible to eat. Read More

This was delicious! I was looking for a great chicken & rice recipe & found it here...so moist too. I did modify it to suit my family's taste however: I did omit the hot sauce & next time I will also leave out the pepper...it was too hot & spicy. Also I substituted a carton of chicken broth for the bouillion cubes (I personally don't use them because of the MSG.) Because of the amount of broth I didn't need to add the water. Also used just one bag of vegetables & that was plenty. Read More
