This is a great recipe, after a few modifications. I turned it into a casserole and diced the chicken. I found that there was not enough 'extras' so I doubled the salsa, rice, water, and soup. Make sure that you cook the rice first or you will get very crunchy rice! This is an easy casserole to make and very delicious!

Terrible. Rice did not cook all the way. Made exactly as receipe said.

I make this using a 16 oz. jar of salsa, a can of corn, a cup of black beans and top with a mexican cheese blend. I serve it with tortilla chips and the kids can't get enough of it! They actually cheer when I tell them it's Chicken Fiesta night. It's also good reheated.

I liked this recipe quite a bit just because it was different. i had some chicken i needed to use up and it seemed to fill us up. I followed the directions to the tee and my rice DID cook thoroughly because i let it cook 20 minutes extra due to other reviewers saying the rice was undercooked, and to my dismay the dish was a little dry. 10-15 minutes extra is best for sure. Anyway, I grilled the chicken in taco flavoring and I only had a half cup of salsa so I added one medium sized diced tomato that i sprinkled with the taco flavor as well. On the top of the dish I also added monteray jack and colby cheese along with crushed tortilla chips. My fiance ate the 3/4 of the dish by himself he liked it so much!

I added some black beans and everyone in my family really liked it. Soooo easy to make, but the rice didn't cook all the way according to the directions, even with an additional ten minutes of cook time I still thought it wasn't quite done. Next time I make it I will probably cook the rice a little bit before adding it.

My husband really enjoys this recipe. The only things we change are omitting the cheese (to be a little healthier) and cutting up the chicken, so it's more like a casserole. Definitely worth making!

Yummy!!! This is a very simple recipe that I tried because I did not know what to make for dinner and had all of the ingredients. It was definitely worth it and will stay on my list of recipes to continue to cook.

My family loved this! I did alter it a bit by adding a rinsed can of black beans. While one of us ate it as it was, the rest of us cut up the chicken, put it all in flour tortillas and topped with sour cream! Per their request I have made it twice in 2 weeks!
