This was a really great dish for the busy night that I made it. It's so easy to prepare, and you have all the necessary elements for a full meal...chicken, rice, vergetables. I had trouble with the cooking time though, as it wasn't enough for the rice to be fully cooked but was making the vegetables too mushy. But even so, this was a terrific dish that I will make again. Thanks for sharing your recipe, brookexlacey. Made for the New Kids On The Block tag game.
