      We loved this dish! I've never made a chicken dish with rice, so I was a little skeptical, because I hate over cooked chicken. I was so surprised at how tender and juicy the chicken was and how delicious this caserole turned out! I didn't have any jalapenos, or mexican style tomatoes, so I used fire roasted diced tomatoes and added about a 1/4 cup of green chili salsa instead. I added a bit more chili powder, cuz we love it, about a tsp of salt and 3 cubed chicken breast halves. We got about 10 good sized servings - we had it for dinner, I took it to lunch the next day, had leftovers for dinner the next night (I added a bit of cheddar - YUM) and again for lunch the following day! I like that this is pretty healthy and low fat, too! I will definitely make this again! Thanks!

      This recipe was great! I did have to substitute a bit but it still turned out very flavorful. I only had one can of stewed tomatoes so I used 1 can plus an 8 oz can of tomato sauce. I also added extra spices: 1 tsp cumin and 2 tsp dried oregano. Very tasty and smells great while cooking in the oven!
