This dish was pretty tasty! I altered it a bit. I seasoned the chicken with sazon and adobo before cooking it. Also, I didn't have any chicken parts so I used boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1" pieces. I added a pinch of red pepper flakes to give it a little kick. Very tastey!

Yes Crissy198, Sazón does make everything taste better, MSG usually does! I just don't ever use it due to the health risks =(

This has become one of my husbands favorites! I add a pinch of saffron during the simmer before I add the rice. It's definitely a good recipe. Thx!

Very good, a little bland, but still tasty:) Made home made tortillas with it and it was a hit with my family. I will be making this again for sure.

Glad you liked it, NanMP! Don't make it in the rice cooker next time and it won't be dry...they tend to steam liquids, not really good if you like a saucier dish!

I made this recipe in the rice cooker. I sautéed the chicken,onion and garlic first. I also added a can of chopped green chiles. It was very tasty, but a bit dry.

Super easy and flavorful. I followed the recipe as is but it would be easy to revise this and add some of your personal favorite ingredients.

Saw this up the other day and gave it a whirl. Whoa! It was quick and good, too! The rice stuck together nice with the tomatoes and other seasonings, but everyone had 2nds so there was no leftovers, wah.

great meal in one plate. I really like this one because its so quick and simple even I can make it haha. I like making burritoes with the leftovers if there are any, but seldom there are

I added some jalapeños and pinto beans toward the end. Super delicious! I didn't have any turmeric though so I substituted ground mustard and also added some cumin and paprika. Yummy!!!

I really enjoyed the recipe. The only reason I didn't rate 5 stars is that it needed to be a little more specific.(add tomatoes but what kind crushed diced or whole?) I used diced & added paprika and extra turmeric. It was great thanks!
