"This is a quick and simple chicken recipe. Simple flavors, but could be spiced up a bit to a persons individual taste with the addition of some mexican spices, chili powder, green chilies, etc."

Servings Per Recipe: 4
"I really liked this one! I had some leftover salsa rice from another recipe, so I used that as the base here, then followed the directions as written except for using red pepper instead of green. Loved every bite, and can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Made for ZWT8"
"Made for ZWT7 and enjoyed VERY MUCH. I did experience some difficulty getting it out of the pan-but it is SO GOOD."
"Reviewed for ZWT7- quite liked this dish. It was easy to put together. I thought that whilst it tasted good, presentation wise it really didn't look too appetizing. Photo also to be posted"
"i thought this was pretty tasty. it has more calories than i would prefer, but overall it's easy to make, tastes good and is good for leftovers!"
"I don't think this recipe could get any easier!!! I put it together in no time.... My family loved this and DH said this is a remake!!! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 5"
"I really enjoyed this recipe! I did make a few changes. I added an onion and sauted it with the chicken and green pepper. I also cut my breasts into 2 pieces each rather than stips. I used home made very hot/spicy salsa and still added a bit of mexican chili powder with lime. But this dish would be just fine exactly as written too. I plan on putting this one into my monthly menus for sure!"
"I love how simple this is and so tasty with only a few ingredients, also great as it can be prepared ahead of time & put in the oven later. Great recipe I'm sure we'll make again. Thanks Iewe!"
"Very easy. I used a mild salsa because DH doesn't do spicy; I was worried that this wouldn't be very flavorful, so I took some other reviewers suggestions and sauteed the chicken and peppers with 2 cloves of garlic and some pepper and onion salt. I also added a sprinkle of garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper to the rice. It was very creamy and tasty, but I think I could have added even more of the spices to perk up the flavor and my family would probably like this better if I cut back a little on the sour cream. Would definitely make this again. Thanks."
"Not often I try something from this site and have to rate it a 3 - maybe it is just our personal tastes. We found it much too heavy with the rice in the bottom and, also, the chicken dried out quickly. Maybe I should have covered for half the time? Next time (because we loved the flavors) I will omit the rice, cover it for 15 mins. uncover and then add cheese. Maybe that way we can make it more to our tastes. Sorry!!"
"Yummo! I made using cooked brown rice instead of white, other than that, made as directed and it's SO good! I think next time, I'll mix everything together first than put it in the baking dish. I served it with recipe #225889. This was a great meal!"
"Da Bomb!! However I made some revisions. Since I love onions & garlic I sauted these along with the green pepper & chicken. I also took others advice and added cumin, seasoning salt and red pepper. I used colby jack cheese. I baked in a 9x13 pan since I used more than 2 cups of rice."
"How simple and tasty this was! I wanted something nice and easy to do for dinner and chose this - what a winner! Although the cook time is a little longer than I would usually allow for weekday meals, prep took no time at all and this was so delicious and tasty that it was worth the extra wait. Both my other half and I really enjoyed it (praise indeed from him)! I made the recipe exactly as stated, except I didn't have any pre-cooked rice so I used pilau quick-cook rice as it was the only thing I could get cooked quick enough: The flavours actually worked really well together though I'd be keen to try it with regular rice as well. Also I decreased the fat a little by using olive oil spray to sautee the chicken and peppers, and I used low fat sour cream. Everything else remained unchanged and to be honest I don't think any further amendments are needed. Fabulous recipe and a definite keeper!"
"This is a nice base recipe. I used a red pepper rather than green and added the juice of 1/2 a lime, 1/3 cup chopped jalepeno and 2 cloves of garlic in with the chicken and added some cumin, chili pepper, salt and black pepper to the rice. I also subbed low fat sour cream with no problems. Quick yummy meal. Thanks iewe!"
"This is a very tasty and easy to make weeknight dinner. I did jazz it up a bit, I sauted the chicken and bell peppers with some salt and pepper and some garlic. I also shook a little garlic powder and chili powder on the rice before topping with the chicken and sauce. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Game."
