I just made this recipe yesterday for today's potluck. I cut up the chicken into chunks because I was serving it to a group and that works better than whole breasts. This is the third recipe very similar to this that I've tried. The first was way too bland and I've been stepping up the flavors on subsequent efforts. My changes: I used the 3 cups cooked rice that the original submitter said was really needed (later correction), added about 1/8 cup finely minced onion and 1/8 cup chopped red bell pepper, left out the onion powder, used one can celery and one can cream of chicken soup, and added about 2 ounces of green peas. My observations: The peas and bell pepper added to the attractiveness of the dish and I found it much tastier than previous versions. On the downside, I had half of it left and I think it was mostly because it still lacks pizzazz on a potluck table; also, it could have still had more flavor. I think it's worth sticking with, but future tries will include more green peas, slightly cooked carrots, about 1/2 cup finely chopped onion and more bell pepper. Also, my rice was a bit too sticky and I will try to find a rice that stays looser. All in all, I thought it was a good tasting dish and my leftovers won't go to waste, but I want to continue to refine it a bit. Many thanks to the person who submitted it.
