  • Recipe Tips:
  • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.

I made a few changes to this to suit our family. I was afraid that it was going to be a little on the flavorless side, but this surprised me by being a very good dish that my husband said was "stinking amazing". I used cous cous instead of rice, added about a clove more of garlic, and seasoned the chicken with seasoned salt and pepper. Followed the cooking directions to a T and it turned out amazing! I also used a blend of parmesan and asiago, and sprinkled some more on top when serving. Will be making this again!

The cauliflower and brocolli were very mushy as well as the cauliflower giving this a "lacking something" taste. I expected more of a fresh veggie taste with this dish. The chicken was good tho.

Yay an easy healthy dish and me and my husband both liked it! the only problem was that my garlic burnt:( still turned out though, because i just added some more after cooking chicken. Also used veg oil not spray, and cheddar cheese:) thanks!

i found this when i was just looking for ideas..some of the stuff i didnt have so i made some changes... i used cream of chicken instead of chicken broth and i cut my chicken up and stirred it in. It was really good but i think next time i'll use more seasoning.. there wasnt much flavor..

A very easy weeknight dinner option. I substituted one sliced yellow squash in place of the frozen veggies and they were steamed perfectly by sitting on top of the rice while it cooked. Needed a little something to finish it off and a splash of lemon juice did the trick to add a lot more depth to the dish.

Very good though I skipped the garlic and parmesan but it was so easy to make and is so flexible I think it could be seasoned for any taste

Very delicious, no changes made!

I was disappointed in this recipe. I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper, which helped, but the rice was very bland and dry. It definitely needed some seasoning and a sauce of some kind. I won't be making this again. UPDATE: Rather than throwing out the leftovers, I cubed the chicken, added half a can of Progresso tomato cooking sauce, and stirred everything together. This made the dish much better.
