Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was very Yummy! This was very Yummy! My son and husband, who are very pickky eaters, liked it! So did I! I loved how it didn't have too many ingredients, I had them all. I did have to make a change, and I have a suggestion. The change I made was to use 2 cups of chicken broth instead of 1 cup. I like it moist, but not too soupy. My suggestion is to double up on the rice, chicken broth and veggies, if you want left overs, I wanted some!!! There was plenty of chicken, but not enough of the rest.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made this recipe with breasts. I made this recipe with breasts. I used 1/4 bottle of dressing after reading the reviews. I bought the frozen rice steamers...steamed the rice in the microwave then added to the sauce. My 11 yr old said it was one of the best things I ever made. After all was done, I saw the bag of almonds on the counter. I forgot to add them. I sprinkled them on top of my dish. I would make this again, especially w/ the frozen rice. Saves alot of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I changed this a little, I am not a fan of instant rice so I cooked the rice and almonds in my rice... I changed this a little, I am not a fan of instant rice so I cooked the rice and almonds in my rice cooker with the chicken broth added a couple of squirts of Italian dressing, steamed the green beans at the same time. Browned the chicken in the Italian dressing. Then placed the rice then the beans then the chicken on the platter and poured the juice from cooking the chicken over the whole thing. Everyone loved it. I will make this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I marinated the chicken in the dressing for a few hours. I marinated the chicken in the dressing for a few hours. I added 1 chopped onion and 2 cloves chopped garlic to pan after chicken was in for a few minutes. My rice needed another five minutes to coook which was fine because I like the green beans cooked a little more too. It was nice having everything cooked in one skillet. I topped it with chopped parsley and pine nuts instead of almonds because that's what I had in the house. We liked it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I didn't understand this recipe much. I didn't understand this recipe much. it says add rice but it doesn't give time for rice to cook. I didn't make the recipe but I think rice won't cook in 5 min without heat !! <<< Response from Kraft Kitchens Expert, Wendy ~ This recipe uses instant rice which simply needs to hydrate in a hot liquid for 5 minutes prior to eating. There is no need to cook it as long as the liquid was brought to boil prior to adding the rice. >>>

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Husband and my boys plus a guest loved it. Husband and my boys plus a guest loved it. But I changed it. First I thought I defrosted chicken breast , wrong, it was chicken legs, than I grabbed another bag that I thought was chicken breast, wrong. It was chicken strips, which cooked just as well. Also I cooked it with broccoli. I always try to add a new recipe each week and this recipe was easy and my family loved it. It is a recipe that I will served again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a great recipe. This is a great recipe. The first time I made it though, the rice didn't cook at the end. The next time I made it, I just added a little more chicken broth and it was really good. Even my mom, who doesn't like chicken all that much, really liked this recipe. I also have made it with drumsticks for my dad and white meat for me and my mom. The drumsticks make it a little harder to make but it still turns out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I found this recipe as written to lack flavor. I found this recipe as written to lack flavor. (I did use chicken breasts instead of thighs as well as low sodium chicken broth.) If I make it again, I might try marinating the chicken for a couple of hours and adding otherherbs or seasonings to the rice and beans while cooking. Even a drizzle of diluted cream of chicken and herb soup over the completed dish might be all it needs.
