Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very simple and delicious! Very simple and delicious! Before following the recipe, I seasoned the chicken and browned it lightly; also added sliced onion. Then followed recipe as directed. One side note, I used brown rice instead of white; follow directions on box for liquid amount instead of recipe. Switch up the salsa for a better flavor as well. I feel all recipes need tweaking to suit different tastes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Family Really Liked it! Made this last night, substituting breasts for boneless skinless thighs. The whole family liked it! I usually make at least 2 different meals a night, but this satisfied everyone!
