I had pulled some canned chicken, cream of mushroom, and pre-cooked wild rice out of the pantry with a mission to make dinner. Found this recipe and went for it. I didn't have any pimentos, but I don't care for them anyway, so I just skipped that. I used half of a red onion that I had, and I think if you're going to use a red onion-- and probably with a white onion too-- you definitely need to saute it before putting everything together. Mine was way too onion-y.
At the suggestion of another reviewer, I opted to skip using the oven on a hot summer night and just heated it in a saucepan, and I added a little garlic. If it hadn't been so onion-strong, it would have turned out perfectly. This definitely makes a good base that you can run with, and with canned chicken & pre-cooked rice, it can make a great hearty dinner in about 10 minutes.
