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!
