Rated 4 out of 5 by from After finishing this dish, I had a few thoughts on how to improve and made some changes. After finishing this dish, I had a few thoughts on how to improve and made some changes. First, I think they switched the rice and chicken stock measurements. It should be 1-1/2 cups of rice to two cups of chicken stock. Otherwise it is way too dry. I added 8 oz of sliced fresh mushrooms toward the end of cooking the chicken. I also felt that the ***** cheese was too overwhelming and tangy. I think 2 oz of ***** cheese and 1/4 cup light sour ***** may be more balanced. It could even be omitted altogether if you're not looking for a creamy version. I also reduced the spinach to 6 oz, which was plenty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it! Loved it! I found it to be dry, too, and wound up using a full 15.5oz can of broth to get it just right. I also added a bit more cream cheese for creaminess. Short cut idea - use pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and frozen spinach. I always have a roti chicken on hand in the fridge that I buy at my grocery each week for salads, etc... This is a great way to use it up. Also, I just thawed the spinach in the microwave a little and didn't even drain it. The dish needed the extra moisture anyway. I will definitely make this again!!! YUM!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was probably the best meal I have made so far off of the Kraft website. This was probably the best meal I have made so far off of the Kraft website. My family loved it. I ended up not having brown rice, so I just used white. I used regular cream cheese, added sauteed mushrooms, used chopped frozen spinach and canned diced tomatoes. I added 1 3/4 c. of the chicken broth and it cooked the rice really good. I didn't think the sauce had too much of a cream cheese taste to where it was all you could taste. I served this with garlic cheese bread. Awesome! Will make over and over again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad at all. Not bad at all. I ate every bit of mine and the baby liked it, too but my husband and son didn't care for it - but I like one-bowl meals. I used frozen spinach (well drained) and a can of tomatoes with the juice 'cause that's what I had on hand. I also had a little piece of velveeta in the fridge and threw that into the pot. It didn't need parmesian cheese after that! I'd make it again, but I'd use really small bits of chicken - maybe even canned chicken.

I used regular rice instead of Minute Rice, so I cooked it 3/4 of the way in advance of mixing with the meat. Next time I would cut the amount of rice in half, as 2 cups of uncooked rice made a TON of rice compared to the other ingredients. Also used cream cheese instead of neufchatel, since I couldn't find it around here. I had to add more broth as the rice got too dry as it cooked. Was very tasty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I make this quite frequently. I make this quite frequently. My picky husband and children really like this. My kids ate this three times before they found out there was spinach in it! I do add extra cream cheese and extra spices. I also cook it a little longer than the recipe says to. The chicken and rice needs a little more time than the recipe says. All in all this is a very good recipe! A nice change when you're stuck in a rut.

After trying it, my 5 yr old decided he likes Popeye's favorite veggie. However, I too, thought it was bland, despite the Italian dressing (I didn't use the LDR version, either). Needed something else--garlic, pepper, maybe poultry seasoning....I was okay w/ the creaminess level, but it was not "creamy" like the title might suggest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First, plan to use double the amount of dressing. First, plan to use double the amount of dressing. Divide, and saute the chicken in dressing as directed EXCEPT keep cooking until chicken is thoroughly cooked, browned, and dressing has made a nice glaze over the chicken. Remove chicken from pan and keep warm. Add remaining dressing to pan and continue as directed. Top with warm, glazed chicken at the end. Much more flavorful!
