"This is so delicious. It sounds so simple and it is, but trust me - you and your family will LOVE it."
"It was very flavorful even though I was missing fresh parsley and instead used dried ones. The only problem was I used long grain rice and it definitely needed more than 20 minutes to cook the rice. It actually took a lot longer so I had to keep adding chicken stock. But will definitely try again with different rice. "- barbaraanneyapana

Tasonis 1 year agoMy family loves this! We've made it twice and it's definitely a staple.
LMBarnes 1 year agoFor me, the chicken was a bit dry and lacked the flavor I hoped it would have. The rice however was wonderful. I added celery, green and red peppers and some seasoned salt. If I make this dish again, I will probably use dark meat like chicken thighs or maybe even pork chops.

AMcNeal4 1 year agoThis was good. I added some spices to kick up the flavor a bit, yummy!
gothdragon 1 year agoI am giving this a one, because I did as directed, even though I know that you usually you use two cups of fluid to one cup of rice!!!! I did as directed by the instructions, and there is NO WAY that anyone who made this as directed had their rice come out done.............Good idea, but very poorly written and executed! I have never given someone a one star rating..........but this recipe is very misleading and definately does not come out as per the instructions.
Jen85hayden 1 year agoUsed thin breast and it was amazing. The kids had seconds and next time I'll have to double the recipe. There wasn't a single drop left and my kids are very picky at dinner
Maroltk 1 year agoVery good! I am very inexperienced at cooking but made this dish with ease! I added the celery as well which was suggested in another review. Cheers!

jairid 1 year agoWe make this often. I use thin sliced chicken breasts, add celery and use quinoa instead of rice. Easy, healthy and tastes good.

Kxnaiades 1 year agoThis is fantastic. I'm always looking for one pot recipes to save time after a long day at work. Not only is this easy and cheap to put together it's also five stars for nutrition! I used frozen vegetables and brown rice instead but it was perfect!
Brooklynbmg 1 year agoThis was just as advertised - very flavorful and satisfying. I did liberally season the chicken with salt and thyme, and added butter to the oil for extra flavor. Instead of rice, I made a batch of orzo pasta and seasoned it with Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard.
Tasonis 1 year agoWonderful! Even my picky eater complimented this dish. Some suggestions/alterations: 1. Coat the chic in mayo and then sprinkle with thyme. I also added rosemary. 2. Brown chic in a combo of 2 tbs buttr and 2 tbs of evoo

cortneygellerparks 2 years agoThe rice was amazing and had great flavor, but the chicken needed a little something more. Will likely make again, but with some tweaking.
Steponmelynn 2 years agoI personally loved this recipe, it was easy and fast. My boyfriend on the other hand didn't like it as much. I did do a few things different too. I grilled my chicken, and added peas with the carrots. The only thing I think I'll do differently next time is make it in a bigger pan lol.
christinebronson 2 years agoGreat. I added thin sliced zucchini and boosted stock with tablespoon of concentrated chicken base .
littlemissriya 2 years agoThis recipe I can see myself using every week. It was super easy to cook this chicken and it tasted superb.
