Good idea, nice taste but bad recipe. So here is how you can make it a 5 star rating. Use boneless chicken breast (salt and pepper and slightly brown in a skillet and don't use the flour). The flour makes it gamy unless you are going to fry the chicken. Since you are slightly browning the chicken cut the cook time to 30 minutes (instead of 45 minutes). Sprinkle ginger, garlic powder, and onion powder - in addition to the parsley. Then follow directions accordingly. NOW, it's 5 star -this is according to my husband who happens to be a chef :)
Good luck.

I made this for a potluck; the only changes I made were "minor" ... I used boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins, and I added 1 onion, 1 red pepper, 1 yellow pepper cut into chunks (added after 30 minutes) just to give it a little color. If you really want to "kick it up" some and can find sweet chili sauce, it's a great condiment!

This was super simple and really tasty! I did add powdered ginger to it, to give it a little more kick. Next time, I may add garlic or garlic powder as well. The chicken stayed nice and moist, even when microwaved the next day. There weren't any leftovers with this dish, but next time, I may try to make chicken salad out of it. Thanks for posting!!

Followed recipe as written, none in the family cared for it. Flour gave the chicken a gummy texture.

I used about 3 cups of leftover rotisserie chicken, and added 3 tablespoons of dried minced onion, and 1 teaspoon each of dried ginger and dried minced garlic to the sauce. I cooked the rice, then mixed together the rice, chicken, pineapple, and sauce, poured it into a casserole dish, sprinkled chopped almonds on top, and baked it for 30 minutes. It was very good; the grandkids liked it, and so did the adults. I will definitely make this again!

This recipe is made regularly in our household! It generally takes me less than 10 minutes to throw everything into the oven. I usually add an onion and a few cloves of garlic to kick it up a bit. The chicken breast is extremely moist and the sauce is so flavorful! Thanks for sharing such a quick, delicious recipe!!

This recipe was EXCELLENT! Sooo easy to make! I used 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts & 3 cups of rice & baked it in a 13x9 pan. The only thing I will do different next time is bake it in a smaller dish or double the recipe for the juice (sauce) so it covers the entire chicken. The juice (sauce) had such a great flavor! Definitely making again! It was even better the next day! Fed 2 adults & 2 kids!
