Made for the Spring PAC Orphanage tag game and what a winner. I made as written only adding a little smoked sausage to the mixture as I had some I wanted to use. Delicious. Definately one I will be making again...so easy and tasty. Thank you for posting.

I tried this recipe and it was very easy and my family liked it. We are not seafood people so I added extra chicken and substituted 1 cup of regular rice for the instant rice. It took a little longer to cook but was really good.
