Simple. Terrific and Tasty! This dish was cooked completed on the stove top. Since I only had brown rice, I cooked the rice (in chicken broth) separately for 30 of the 45 minutes the package called for. I then added the rice to the pan added the chicken back in covered and cooked low on stove top. I repeat-Simple, Terrific & Tasty!
Chef John has a way with making everyday favorites a little more special. I was going to make regular chicken and rice with cream of chicken soup but I was glad I saw this.
It uses ingredients you probably already have around the house.
Easy and quick prep.
Maybe a little spicy for some, but this might be due to the fact I used a jalapeno because I didn't have bell peppers.
So flavorful, absolutely delish!
