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.

Very good! I followed directions to a T, and there wasn't any heat to it. Next time, I will not seed the jalapeno, as I would prefer a little heat. The chicken seemed to be a little strong of cumin, but then again, my lime didn't seem to produce much juice, and maybe that would have cut it. I will adjust to our tastes and try again for sure! Thanks for posting!

My hubby and I loved this dish, the rice served as a wonderful compliment to the spicy chicken! We really enjoyed the flavor combination of the cilantro with the cumin! We will surely make again! I didn't have any lime, but used about 2 capfuls of lemon juice and that worked just fine. Also, if you really like a kick, add a 1/2 a habanero and about an 1/8 of a teaspoon of cayenne(in place of the jalapeno) YUM!!

we loved this dish. the rice was SOOOO good, and the chicken just spicy enough. we left out the jalapeno 'cause we didn't have one, but will add it next time.

My daughter & I thought this was good; she especially liked the rice. My husband, however, didn't care for it; thought it was too spicy & I didn't even use the jalapenos or red pepper!! So, overall, it was good, but I probably won't make it again because hubby wasn't fond of it.
