shredded Cheddar cheese
fresh sliced mushrooms
1 (16 ounce) jar
cooked white rice
boneless chicken breast halves, cooked and diced
This was a good dish. Next time I'll use less salsa. Also I should point out that the recipe calls for 2 cups of COOKED rice. If you measure out 2 cups of uncooked rice you will get about 6 cups of cooked rice. Hope this helps.
Great chicken and rice recipe. My family thought it was good! It's really more of a Mexican chicken and rice casserole. I would cook it again. It was a nice twist from the normal chicken dishes!
Just a note to the person who said cutting the mushrooms took the most time. You can quickly and evenly slice fresh mushrooms using an egg slicer. Just place the mushroom where the egg goes with the cap towards the hinge, pull down on the cutting blades and a whole mushroom is instantly sliced
This is one of my most popular dishes. My husband loves it. I like to crumble totilla chips, mix with some butter and sprinkle on top of casserole before putting it in to bake. It looks nicer to present and it's got some extra crunch!
I tried this with and without mushrooms, and it is definitely better WITH them! I also added a can of black beans, extra cheese, green onions, and fresh cilantro. Served it with avocado and warm tortillas - great, easy meal!
This has become a favorite in our house. I like to prepare a few dishes ahead of time to use in the week or pull out of the freezer for unexpected guests - this recipe fits the bill perfectly. It is easy to make and tastes great. Freezes well.
This recipe was great...it will be a new family favorite. It is very easy to make. I made some changes to the recipe...I added black beans and some hot sauce to the mixture and also sprinkled some cheese on top 5 minutes before taking it out of the oven. I didn't use all of the rice called for in the recipe, maybe only a cup and a half instead of two and I thought that it could use just a little more salsa and maybe some diced tomatoes. It was very very good. I served it with sour cream and tostadas. Excellent!!!
This recipe was great! I just changed a couple things some of you may be interested in. I cooked the chicken in taco seasoning and added a can of spicy black beans,olives, taco sauce (in addition to the salsa) and crushed chips and cheese on top to make the dish look more presentable. I didn't use any mushrooms. Just delicious! My boyfriend loved it and his niece (sometimes a picky eater) liked it as well, it even got my mom's approval.
