I did, however, change it a little. I read the reviews and found some that said there was not enough flavor so I shook a non-salt seasoning on the chicken and I added minced garlic. I also added cumin to the salsa, corn and uncooked rice. I used a fiesta blend of cheese. The chicken turned out very moist and the rice was yummy. It was a quick and easy dinner, I would definately make it again.

I read other comments about being bland, So I like Mexican food and I took a package of Taco Seasoning and placed on a plate. washed the Chicken Breasts under cool water and rolled in the taco Seasoning and then placed into Skillet with Oil. The seasoning on the Chicken left just enough residue in the oil so that when I completed the remainder of the recipe, it was great. Had some friends in and they were very pleased with the dinner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used 1 lb. I used 1 lb. chicken tenderloins instead of the chicken breasts, and before I browned them in the pan I coated them with a couple tablespoons of Taco Bell taco seasoning. I also added black beans to the rice, and used a Mexican cheese blend instead of just cheddar. It turned out well, and had lots of flavor. It was very easy and quick to make, and I am sure I will make it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was pretty good! This was pretty good! I cut up the chicken & added my fav spices, used a lil extra salsa & water. Chicken was great ~kids (even the picky one) ate it. The rice ( I used white) was harder to get her to eat although she did. The others enjoyed it ~ Hubby ate a huge plate, said maybe a lil spicy but I didn't think so.. I used some cayenne pepper, red pepper, & seasoning salt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this recipe in a crock pot. I made this recipe in a crock pot. It was a one pot meal which we need during our granddaughters Little League base ball games. Everyone loved it. The chicken was so moist that when I took the chicken out of the crock pot it was so tender we cut it with a fork. This one will be one that we use on ball game nights. My granddaughter said it's a keeper grandma.

This is one of those recipes for which you realize you have most, if not all, the ingredients and go "Oh good, I can pull this off!" I browned chicken quarters, then threw the water, corn, salsa and white rice into the pan, and cooked it all together. I used "Mexican Style" cheese but imagine any kind would be fine. Nice dish!

I added ground cumin and chili powder to the chicken. This was very easy and quick to make. I didn't remove the chicken after cooking it, I dumped everything in and it turned out perfect!!! I also made Mexican cornbread. I would recommend this to all my friends!!!

Similar to a dish I've made before..except we used a latino mix we found in the frozen veggie section at the store- corn , black beans, diced peppers and onions- also use the mexican mix of cheeses and a dash of chilli powder ( not much, I dont like spicy!) great with crumbled tortilla chips on top too.
