My wife has made this for me as long as I've known her and I've always loved it. One important change (I think) is that she doesn't use instant rice; instead partially cook up a good whole grain rice medley ahead of time and add to recipe. She also does way more salsa....and any cheese you like will do the job nicely, we usually go for the medium cheddar already in the fridge.

this was alright can't say I would make it again. I think I would try out some other new recipe if looking for something to do with my chicken next time.

Served this for company-everyone loved it. Just a couple changes. I used 2 packages of partially cooked Yellow Rice w/seasonings, added a can of diced tomatoes & a diced onion. Because it is my MO, I cooked it in a large crock pot for 8 hours turned to low after one hour. I will make it again.

This was so easy and really good. I too added a little more salsa and cheese. I will use this recipe a lot!!

This was very good! I gave this recipe a 4 because I made some changes. Instead of using cream of chicken, I used a can of cheddar cheese soup. I also added some chili powder, crushed red pepper, and jalapenos. I did not measure out the salsa, I just used enough to cover each chicken breast. Before serving, I added extra cheese while it was still hot. Will definitely make again!!

very good, I think next time I will add a cup of frozen corn in addition to (or instead of) the yellow bell pepper and also probably some onion for a tad more flavor.

I used instant brown rice instead of white and it turned out terrible! The rice on top was cooked, but on the bottom it was still crunchy. This had a great flavor, but if I try brown rice again I will increase the liquid or decrease the amount of rice called for.

This was a great recipe. Definitely add the extra cheese and salsa. I used instant whole wheat rice and it worked out fine, so that is also an option if you want to go whole grain but don't want to pre-cook the rice.
