This was very easy and very good. Even my 16 mos old devoured it!!
I included onions, garlic and tomatoes. Good flavor but too heavy with the rice, in my opinion.
I made this strictly according to the recipe and it was very good, but I think I may modify it next time...I'll add the tomatoes as others have suggested, and have a little less sour cream. This was really great and had lots of flavor! It's a keeper.
This was fantastic and oh-so-easy!! Really delish! I opted to not add the tomatoes; mainly because I didn't feel the dish needed it and I was right. Plenty tasty without them. The only things that I did differently, were to add s&p to taste (as I really didn't see much "salt" in any of the ingredients) and I didn't do the parmesan (and THAT'S because I forgot it!!). I nuked the diced chicken in a covered casserole until it was nearly cooked...super easy! The ingredients didn't specify the size of the rice box...and they vary according to brands (I saw them from 4.0 oz. to 8 oz.). I used a 6.0 oz. box of Near East Long Grain & Wild Rice and I think it was the perfect size. I think, otherwise, the size might affect how moist/dry the casserole turns out. A real keeper and something that will be made often in our house! Thanks for sharing!
My husband loves this dish! I've added cumin and cayenne pepper to the sour cream mixture and it's great. I've also substituted whatever cheese I have and it's still great. We love this recipe!
I'm sorry to give such a low rating, but this did not work at all for my family. I basically followed the recipe as written, with the addition of the drained can of tomatoes suggested by other reviewers. It turned into a mushy mess... very little flavor & an unpleasant texture. I don't know what went wrong, but we won't be trying this one again. Thanks anyway.
This was actually much better than I had expected. I followed the advice of another reviewer and added a can of Rotel tomatoes to the rice mixture. This provided some much needed flavor for the dish. I also omitted the parmesan cheese. I would make again with the designated changes.
I forgot to add stars when I first reviewed this! Oops. This is a great dish! First, it pre-cooks really well. On Saturday I made the chicken, the rice, and grated the cheese. Then I assembled and cooked on Tuesday - couldn't have been easier. The only changes I made were to add more sour cream and green chile and to use an 8x8 pan instead. I'm a sauce/gravy lover so I don't like dry. The first time I made this it the rice was a little dry. Last night with the extra sour cream it was perfect. Creamy, not dry at all. It's a keeper - we'll be having this often. —
Delicious! I mixed the sour cream mixture with the chicken to make layering easier, and I topped each serving with salsa. I will be making this often! ;)
