This goes well with a salad and some crusty rolls. A nice light dinner. Make sure you stir half-way through cooking as stated or may come out runny (found this out after making it a few times).

This dish tasted good, but the smell, oh the smell! It turned DBF off, and he wouldn't try the dish. I'm more of a trooper though and didn't let the smell hinder my tasting. The dish tasted alright, but the smell lingered in my house for two days. I used less than 1/4 of an onion too. I'm not sure if i'll make this again because of the smell factor, but it really is an okay tasting dish.

Didn't like this as much as I thought I would. The rice seasoning was too overpowering. Maybe it would have been different with another brand.

I made this recipe on the stove instead of the oven. I cooked the rice as directed on the box, adding the cooked chicken about half way through. After it was done I added the soup & milk. Cooking it this way saved me about 20 minutes cook time. Simple, easy, tasty...
