Unfortunately we didn't really like it. I was excited to make it from the reviews, but DH and I just weren't into it. The beans and cream cheese created a weird texture and the taste was really bland (we even used the salsa recc by several reviewers). I think I might try to put the leftovers (there were tons!) in tortillas and make them as enchiladas tomorrow.
What a wonderful easy dish!!! The only change I made was to add a chopped onion and some garlic.When I added The cream cheese I too shredded the chicken and served it with yellow rice and tortillas. Thank You so much for posting such a GREAT recipe !!!
This is amazing!!!! I made this for the first time a few months ago, and it's pretty much been my dinner every Friday night- a treat I look forward to greatly!!! My favorite is to put it over rice. I make about two cups of rice with this recipe, and that always seems to be about perfect. I also loved it in tacos and over pasta, and I served it to friends one night with chips! EVERYONE is a fan with this- you can't go wrong! And sooo easy!!!! I always use refrigerated chicken breasts, about 2-2.5 lbs (five of them).
My whole family LOVED this chicken dish. Whoever said you should shred the chicken is probably right. Hardly any leftovers but they're all for ME.
I tried this recipe with just a slight modfication, I used fat free cream cheese. It turned out really well, very good flavor and not bland at all. I used Paul Newmann's medium salsa and stirred in cooked brown rice at the end. Like other commenters, I shredded the chicken when the cream cheese was added. Next time I'll probably add more corn or beans and try noodles instead of rice. Great recipe!
Love this recipe ... easy, no defrosting necessary, put together and go do whatever you need to for the day! I have made this dish 3 times and everyone raves and asks for the recipe!
This is absolutely delicious!!!!! I make it at least once a week and have passed it to all my friends who also make it once a week. You literally cant get any easier, just toss it all in! Love it all the time =)
We thought this was just okay .I made exactly the same . No rave reviews here
This recipe did not go over well at all. My kids wouldnt touch it with a 10 foot pole and my husband, who would eat a brick if you put it in front of him, did not like it. The chicken was dry, the beans were mushy, it didn't have a lot of flavor, even though I added spices to it. Will not make again.
add cumin, chili powder and garlic powder and its great!
