We made this while taking the "United Way Hunger Challenge." For the challenge, as a couple we had to live off of $12 per day for all our meals/drinks. This was a very economical and easy recipe. I cut up the chicken into chunks and mixed it in with the rice and everything else. Also, we used a can of diced tomatoes instead of salsa and didn't have any chili powder. Still it was very tasty and was our lunch for most of the 5 day challenge.
This was so easy to put together.. and tasted great! The chicken cooked perfectly and tasted wonderful along with the jasmine rice. I used broth instead of water and only 2 boneless skinless breasts. I used a dish with a tight fitting lid AND tinfoil under neither and it still took 1 hour and 5 minutes to cook. The rice was still crunchy and hadnt absorbed the liquid after 45 minutes.
I doubled the recipe, threw in some cream of mushroom because its all i had left..an hour later and bam...some tasty rice and chicken.
This was good, but I also had to increase the baking time.
OMG! this is delicious..I added a can of hot rotel tomatoes and 1/2 cup salsa along with a can of Mexican corn....no beans, I did not have any..I used 1-1/2 cups of quick cooking 5 minute rice and 1-1/2 cups water...I mixed chili powder,salt, onion powder and garlic powder together and sprinkled over the boneless chicken breast.....Baked for exactly one hour and it was perfect...chicken was moist and tender and the rice was delicious....I sprinked cheese on top after removing from the oven and let it sit for about 5 minutes before serving.....So good....My entire family LOVED it......I will be making this again real soon...Thanks for taking the time to post!!!!
Loved this!! I used Turn Your Crock Pot Into a Smokehouse Chicken (Smoked Chicken), "Turn Your Crock Pot Into a Smokehouse Chicken" (about 1/2 of the prepared smoked chicken that had been deboned) and chopped and mixed it up in the recipe with about 1 T. dried minced onions and 1/4 t. cumin and added it to the rest of the seasoning called for in the recipe. Cooked it 1 hour, added the cheese and let it sit for awhile to absorb the rest of the liquid. So flavorful!! Thanks for sharing..it's a keeper.
Made recipe as written an I'm 1 hour in and still soupy. Grrr. Diced the chicken. Will update with hopefully better news in another 15 minutes..
