I thought this was a bit bland but once I added Mediterranean Sea Salt it was fairly tasty. I will put this in a shallower as we liked the crusty part (top) best and add some garlic next time. I think played with this could become one of my go to recipes - especially since I usually have the ingredients listed - especially as leftover rice and chicken.
I decided not to add anything when making this the first time and we liked it very much. Using 2 cups of rotisserie chicken might have given my dish more flavor. I may add some chopped water chestnuts for a fun crunch the next time I make this. I put this in a 8x11 inch baking dish and was able to cut it into12 servings. The next potluck I go to, I plan on making this to take. Yum, can't wait. Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game (July '10 - Oct. '10)
After reading the other reviews I decided to add salt, pepper, onion powder, & garlic powder along with a little butter to this dish. I didn't think it was bland but it was on the mild side. I think this would be perfect for those little picky eaters. Made for Gimmie 5 Tag
Easy and budget friendly. I used some leftover grilled chicken and leftover rice, Perfect Basic White Rice This came out sort of like a quiche of sorts. We thought it was pretty bland even with the green chilies but sent the rest over to the neighbors- they have three BIG growing boys! They inhaled this but also thought it would be good with some more seasoning. Could be a southern thing. Pepperjack would be good here as well as some garlic. The onions stayed crunchy here too so I think I would soften them first. Thanks for a different and interesting recipe! Made for *Everyday is a Holiday Tag Game*
Aussie Swap Dec 08: Easy and tasty dish!! Love the addition of the cilantro to this dish!! We will be making this again!
This makes a really good quick weeknight meal, providing you've prepared the rice and chicken ahead of time, like I did! I love throwing it all together in one pot and stash away in the oven. We did need to season each serving with salt, plus my son added garlic powder which he adds to most everything anyway. I'd like to add some fresh broccoli next time. I didn't have monterey jack, so used 2% cheddar instead. MERP'd for Newest Zaar tag. thanks LA!
