This recipe is really good. A definite keeper. DH added chunky hot picante sauce to his at the table and pronounced it a 5*. DS and I preferred it without the picante sauce. It has a light lemon/savory flavor. I did use regular long grain rice and adjusted the liquid and cooking time accordingly, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for sharing.

What a simple recipe to make! I varied the veggies a bit, according to what I had in the fridge, but stuck to the recipe otherwise. It came together quickly and had a lovely lemony flavour. Great with a bit of parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.

DELICIOUS! I served this with Teriaki sauce, butter, and Louisana Hot Sauce and added red pepper flakes, too.

Have made this twice in one month! Nice, "clean" food. Like a chicken pot pie without the pie. Good and quick for me to cook after work. Thanks!

This was easy and healthy, but I thought it lacked flavor.

It's always awesome when you can find a meal both yummy and healthy - and this fits the bill! This will definitely be on the menu again soon, thanks!

What a great weeknight meal when you have spent all day at the office and want to cook something quick. I substituted the chicken breast with boneless chicken thigh meat (hubby prefers it) and I didn't have any peas on hand so I added chopped green peppers along with the carrots, onions and garlic. Otherwise I followed the recipe as written. A nice, simple, easy meal. Thanks for sharing it!

My family really liked this! I liked the subtle lemon flavor, and my husband loved that it wasn't a highly acidic meal. My 5 kids cleaned it up! Thank you so much!

My family emptied the pan! This was very good and LESS than 300 calories for dinner!! I did now have instant rice, I didn't realize until I was prepping. I had to use my whole grain rice which took me a while. And I used a different pot and added it later. But this was still a very good dinner. Thank you for posting!

Sorry, but my family didn't like this. It was tasty, but not outstanding.
