So easy and yummy! I usedc brown rice instead of white so it cooked 45 minutes instead of 20, and I also adde a can of black bean and a can of corn.

This was awesome! I added some garlic, cumin and extra seasonings on the chicken. I scaled the rice back to 3/4 cup and water 1 1/2 cup broth. Mine cooked on medium low for 18 min. I just cut up one large chicken breast instead of tenders. Just the right amount of spice for me.

This was fantastic and easy!! made a few alterations that I think really made it better though (I think it would have been rather bland for us otherwise)...added black beans to the rice and used salsa because I only had a very lg can of whole tomatoes. Also added cumin,garlic, and minced jalapeno and onion. Next time I will try to change it up and make it Greek style with chick peas, oregano, lemon and feta!!...served with a cucumber,tomatoe and onion salad.Thanks for a great and SUPEREASY meal.

I have made it twice in a week...once for my daughter and then for me. I added a can of black beans to it. Great recipe!

Not in the mood to cook? Then this is the one for you. So quick! And very flavorful too. Small changes: used chicken breast halves sliced into 4-5 large slices, didn't have enough Cheddar so used some Mozzarella too. Worked out well. And the leftovers were also good. It IS a tad spicy but we like it. If your "heat" tolerance is low, use the mild Rotel. A keeper! Thanks to you, mrsmwp, for posting....Janet

I thought it was good. My changes included: Browning the tenders first because I used 10 minute rice and added random spices to taste. The tomatoes were a bit spicy but that's what I had in the cabinet. The kids noticed the kick but it wasn't too much for them. I will be making this again, It was crazy easy, quick and yummy.

I give this 4 stars for being easy, healthy, and quick. The flavor isn't spectacular, but my husband liked it. *Revisited: The flavor improves dramatically if a good salsa is used instead of Rotel!

I had my ten year old daughter make it. She said it was too easy!!! We used chicken stock instead of broth, added some dehydrated onions, some smoked paprika and Turmeric for colour and flavour. Also some butter and less cheese. It was great.

We loved this! I added a bit of cilantro and cumin, also used brown rice. Even my toddler said YAY :) Thanks!

I was looking for something tasty, but easy to cook for supper last night. Well with the title reading Easy!!! Easiest, I knew I had to try it and I'm glad I did. I made a few changes: instead of chicken I used peeled frozen shrimp and sausage I had on hand. GREAT recipe!
