I made this for our Halloween Potluck and everyone raved about it. I did make 2 changes however, I used Trader Joes Brown Rice Trilogy for the instant rice and cooked it 40 minutes(it is not an instant)and I left out the chicken(accidently put chicken in freezer night before). I am sure it would be even better with the chicken. This is a definite keeper and a great make ahead recipe. Thanks Secret.
