Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolutely fabulous dish. An absolutely fabulous dish. Reminiscent of a Mexican smothered chicken. Out of pure laziness, I left the bones in the chicken thighs but did remove the skin. Definitely serve on top of brown rice rather than having rice on the side. Will be making regularly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was easy to make and very good to eat. This was easy to make and very good to eat. You can't even taste the brown rice, so the family doesn't know they are eating healthy rice not white rice. May be a bit to salty for some. I am vegetarian so I made it with extra beans and used my soy chicken strips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Fantastic! So yummy and tasty - Easy to make and a big hit with the family. I used the whole package of the taco seasoning and doubled up on the corn, black beans, and salsa. Tonight we are going to eat the left overs on a bed of Tostito Chips. Yummy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WONDERFUL! WONDERFUL!I served it without rice the first time because I forgot to make the rice and again with rice and loved it both ways. I also used a whole package of taco seasoning which gave it a little more flavor. Love it! Love it! Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I added more seasoning (used my own). I added more seasoning (used my own). Added fresh cilantro to the dish before putting in the oven. My family does not like rice so we used this as a topping for nachos. Very good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe tonight and my family loved it and would like to have it again. I made this recipe tonight and my family loved it and would like to have it again. I served it over white rice and put a spoonful of sour cream on top. I left out the corn and onions since no one likes them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for a busy day. Excellent for a busy day. Made it in the afternoon and baked when I got home from work. Instead of rice made a salad and topped it with the bake. Super yummy and super easy on a busy night.
