As written...the instructions do not allow for the rice to be cooked at all...but once the instructions are corrected, it is very good and very easy!

I loved this, I did add a few things. 1 can of mexican red beans, 1 pouch of taco seasonings (I simmered the shredded chicken in it) also I added 1/2 cup of sour cream into the dish while it was cooking. I am thinking next time Ill add a can of green chiles too.
