Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family loved this one! My family loved this one! I substituted kidney beans for the pinto beans and I added more chicken broth to the leftovers before I refrigerated it because it does tend to dry out a little, but it makes great leftovers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was very tasty. This was very tasty. Instead of frying the chicken breasts, I cooked them on the grill and that worked very well. Easy to make and delicious. I will definitely make this again. Thank you Kraft!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My family and I were a litle disappointed in this recipe. My family and I were a litle disappointed in this recipe. It was really bland. I made the mistake of following the instructions exactly. The chicken was really blah no flavor, and the rice was a little dry. If I do make it again, I will season the chicken with cumin and chili powder, maybe a little garlic. But the vote was not to keep this recipe.
