Great flavor if you like spicy, but for family meal with kids to spicy. Kids were unable to eat. Reducing spices and deglazing pan might help reduce heat.

Really good-my husband commented on how delicious it was. Although I cut the recipe in half for two- I accidentally left the rub ingredients the same- so probably hotter chicken than intended. But the sour creme helped balance that out. Thanks for a good one. one note- Not clear what size can of tomatoes needed.

One cup broth to one cup rice won't work! Try 2 cups! And one cup of rice isn't enough!

I have moved to England and so miss food from home. So I make this about once a week. I love it it's so easy and taste amazing.

Yummy! Favorable reviews from the entire family, including my finicky 4yr old who devoured it. Unlike other reviews, I found the amount of spice to be just right and so did my husband, who likes spicy.

The spice rub for the chicken was fantastic - I plan on using that for other chicken recipies. This is a great dish - thank you!

This recipe just didn't work well for me, probably because my chicken pieces were very large and meaty...they took about 90 minutes to totally cook, and the rice was pretty mushy by then. I think it would work much better with breast meat, and will try that next time. The seasoning, however, was really outstanding, so I'm not giving up on this recipe. I'll keep trying...

Going in the keep file. Good, and easy!

This was an easy dish to make. I reduced the amount of chicken which made the spices kick in more. Makes great left-overs too.

wonder do you put chicken in spice rub for this recipe?

Tastes awesome but it could use a little more spicyness in it
