    Okay, I basically remade this recipe. I wanted to submit it to Kraft, but I cannot find how... Take out the canned corn & chili powder I increased the broth by 1/4 cup, added a rinsed can of black beans, and an un-drained diced tomatos. To add some flavor because some people said the rice was bland, I mixed in about 2 tsp taco seasoning (I also added that amount to the chicken coating mixture -- I used bread crumbs instead of the premixed coating). Lastly, I don't think the cheese makes a big difference in type you use, but I used a mexican blend shredded cheese instead of the cheddar. My family loved the dish -- and we had corn on the side. 8) Hope that helps someone else who wants a recipe like this. 8) I will definitely be making my version again. 8)

    Used plain corn and added peas. Doubled chili powder and also added dash of pepper and cumin. I made this in a much smaller casserole dish which meant cooking an extra 20 minutes but the rice was perfect. I followed the instruction to user larger dish 2nd time and rice was dry. Making it right now in the small dish. Boyfriend loves it and it's healthy!

    The chicken was easy and had a great taste. I didn't like the rice. Will cook the chicken only next time.
