Delicious!! I made this for my visiting parents, and I used a habanero from my garden, this was so good it was spicy but not over the top, I used a very dark hoppy beer, cuz thats what my husband drinks so it's all I had and it was just fantastic! This is one of my new favorite dishes, thanks so much!! I LOVE this!

Overall, a good dish, but it was NOT spicy at all. I used one chopped jalapeno as directed. We have to put salsa in it to give it a kick. The flavor outside of that is very nice, though. The chicken was tasty and tender. Oh, and it also took more than 50 minutes for it to cook. I don't know if it's the rice we used or what, but the rice took FOREVER to get done cooking.

I loved the rice more than chicken but that is a personal preference. My husband went crazy for this dish but I think it needs more salt at the end of cooking. Also it doesn't say, but I assumed you cover wihile rice cooks?????

Great recipe. Very flavorful. Just need to add salt and pepper at the end though.

Excellent! The rice was good enough to eat by itself! I didn't have all the ingredients on hand. I used garlic powder and a spicy pepper seasoning. I minced the tops from 1/2 a bunch of cilantro. I think any more would have been overpowering. Omitted the peas. This was very flavorful without being too hot/spicy.

Very tasty, my whole family enjoyed this meal. We used Aji Amarillo peppers in it and that really seemed to make the dish for us. Thanks Sackville Girl.

It was bland for us, but we are used to eating VERY spicy foods. I think it would be better prepared with about half the rice. I added more garlic, but will definitely try it again with less rice. The cilantro flavor is delicious.

A definite keeper! Delicious and not too spicy. The beer gives the chicken and rice a really nice flavor, and the jalapeno gives it a nice kick. Instead of blending the cilantro, I just finely minced a whole bunch of it, and it seemed to work fine. I made the dish with whatever I had in my kitchen, so I used green peppers instead of red, although I think the red peppers would add some nice color. I like colorful meals, so in the future I might use a red pepper in the dish and an orange or green pepper to garnish, and I might swap around corn, peas, and diced carrots for variety.
