This recipe was incredibly easy and we really enjoyed it! I had to leave out the mushrooms (BF loathes them), but prepared the rest of the recipe as-written. This was the perfect amount of spice for us. The chicken was fabulous served over long grain brown rice with sauce over all of it...Mmmmm! Thanks, Skooch! This is a keeper and will go on the quick, but fabulous list! :)

This was excellent! I served it over plain long grain rice with some chicken bullion added to the water. The mushrooms in it tasted fantastic!

Very easy to make, I used spinach instead of mushrooms, sprinkled about 1/2 tsp of Cumin over cooked chicken, added a can of black beans with the rotel and served over brown rice, it was a hit for the whole family and that's tough to do with 8 and 14 year old boys + hubby! It's definitely going into my weekly rotation!!
