      We loved this recipe! We thought it was very tasty and not a crumb was left behind.<br/>The only thing I did different was combine all ingredients together (without cooking them first), placed them in the dish, and then added the chicken....<br/>Oh, and I did have to cook longer, 'cause I used brown rice (it was all I had).<br/>Thank you for posting this recipe, it was made a great meal. We will be making it again soon!

      I was looking for a recipe for chicken/rice casserole that was delicious and easy - without using a can of cream of ___ soup. This completely fits the bill! It takes a tad bit longer to prepare than the cream of casseroles - but not that much, really - and I think it's totally worth it! I prepared it ahead and just kept it in fridge for a few hours till ready to cook -and that worked out fine. It was a very filling and pretty healthy one dish meal. All I did differently was to use black beans instead of kidney (I just don't like kidney beans at all) and I used only 1 cup frozen corn - and added 1 cup frozen peas. For chicken, I used boneless, skinless breasts. Coating the chicken was a really nice touch! The flavor is really good - not bland or too spicy. I do like spicy, so next time I will probably add jalapenos and cumin -- but, the flavor as written was not too bland for me at all (I think I probably added 2x the chili powder, though)! It's a really nice recipe - and I felt good making such an easy and delicious casserole w/o using the can of cream of ____ . It felt lighter and fresher than the cream ofs (even the red. fat varieties ) Everyone in my family loved this and def wants it again. I served it w/ Mexican sweet corn cake (Mexican Sweet Corn Cake) and fried plantains - dessert was my Tres Leches cake. Perfection! Thanks for a great recipe!
