The first change I will make to this recipe is to not use minute rice. I will make the rice ahead of time and use cooked rice. I also will add more cilantro, onions, peppers,black olives and corn. I think adding some cumin will help too. I might also crush taco chips and add them as a topping.

Made this Friday night as is, for an evening with new neighbors. It was easy and they went for seconds-I was thrilled! My husband and I are thouroughly enjoying the left-overs.

I haven't made this yet, I plan on it. Recipe looks good and easy. I noticed comments it wasn't spicy enough. I would suggest instead of salsa use a can of Rotel tomatoes. I suspect that would be just enough bite.

Great recipe! Fast and delicious, I added a can of corn and omitted the yellow peppers only because I did not have any on hand. I will be making this again!

This is an excellent dinner choice! Everyone loved it - even the kids! I have made this several times and it always comes out a little different - but always scores high on the satisfaction scale!

I haven't made this yet, but being from New Mexico, which is noted for it's chilies, to be a true Santa Fe Chicken, it will NEED to have chilies in it.

When I read the recipe, I felt it needed some help. I used the main ingredients plus: I marinated the chicken for about 10 minutes in lemon juice and Old Bay Seasoning (Mexican Seasoning is better, but I was out of it)and added some sliced onions and chopped scallions to the recipe. If you do not like cilantro, a mix of finely copped plain-leaf parsley (not the curly type)and scallions can be used as a substitute. Also, if you do not have Mexican Seasoning, sprinkle a bit of Cumin on the chicken. Cumin is what gives the "Mexican taste" to the food. I will make it again, this time with Mexican Seasoning.

MADE THIS WITHOUT THE CILANTRO, IT IS GOOD BUT DEFINATELY NEEDS SOME SPICE TO IT. I ADDED CHILI PEPPERS AND IT STILL NEEDS SOMETHING MORE. FAST AND EASY. I ALSO USED BROWN RICE. MAYBE A HOT SALSA WOULD WORK?

I made this last night for my family. My kids loved it. My husband and I liked it pretty well. If you love cilantro this is the recipe for you. If I make it again I think I will add a can of green chillies or something. It could be a little more spicy for my taste but, it was good.
