This recipe was delicious and fairly simple to make. I used basmati rice. Also, I browned the mushrooms and carrots before adding to the rice mixture. I cooked the browned chicken and rice mixture in a dutch oven in the oven at 300 degrees for an hour, as I had to leave the house and wanted it to be ready when I returned. Also, I used some olive oil to brown the chicken and then some margarine to brown the mushrooms and carrots.
This was a really simple and quick meal to pull together. I added some kale, just for extra nutrition. Thanks for posting the recipe.
Easy prep, simple ingredients, great taste! I made 1.5 times the recipe and used leftover cooked chicken breast that I diced and put on top halfway through cooking. It looks like a very versatile recipe and I will definitely be making it again. Thanks for a great meal!
