      Really tasty. Mine wasn't very spicy, but I find Jalapeno's vary greatly. I also guess they meant Cayenne pepper when the recipe says red pepper, so that also contributed to its lack of fire. That said, my family prefers it not too hot, so I was the only one disappointed. Everybody loved it.

      Great recipe! I had chicken tenders in the fridge and was thinking at work during the day about something interesting I could do with them. So I searched 'zaar and found this recipe. Definitely a winner. Baking the chicken tender made them so much more moist than when I typically saute them until done. I was able to throw this together in about 40 minutes. Thanks !

      We LOVE spicy food- my husband DEVOURED it!! The rice and the chicken complimented each other VERY well- thx for posting!! My changes: I had no red bell peppers, I used 1/2 tsp both hot paprika AND 1/2 mild paprika, I did not remove the seeds from the jalepeno, I used a vidallia onion instead (what I had on hand), and jasmine rice. The chicken was VERY tender but I had to cook it for another 15 min. in the oven on 350, top shelf.
