This was excellent, though I did a few things differently. I prepared slow cooking rice ahead of time. I also gently steamed the fresh broccoli first. This saves from having to overcook the chicken while waiting for the rice and vegetables to become tender, which seems to happen to me occasionally. This dish was delicious, and easy!

Decent, but a little bland. Possibly I had the wrong instant brown rice, but it was underdone.

I like other reviewers used cooked brown rice then put it into the oven to bake for 30 minutes and this helped ensure chicken to be fully cooked. Simple, easy to make with good results

In order to avoid undercooked rice, I changed up the preparation a little - I cooked the rice in chicken broth before adding it to the soup mixture in my skillet. I should have pre-cooked the broccoli too - it took a while to cook through in the sauce mixture. I used a little bit of chicken broth instead of water in the sauce mix, and I seasoned the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and garlic powder before cooking in garlic-infused olive oil (yum!). The overall result was pretty good. I'd do this again because it certainly was quick & easy, but I'll have to play around with the prep a little more.

It was a very easy recipe, although I did cook slow cooking rice beforehand. It was good and seemed like a very healthy meal too. My brother kept suggesting that I should have added cheese to it. Might try that next time. Will let you all know how that turns out.

Very easy and fast! I would suggest cooking the chicken until almost done, little pink left. My picky husband even LOVED this and he has always disliked broccoli! Thanks for sharing this with us!

This was a very filling meal!! After my cousin and I polished our plates I had enough left over for two lunches!! I did not have paprika so at fist it was a bit blan so I added plenty of cheese and of course it really complimented the broccoli!! Good recipe!

Made as directed and came out very well. I added onions and celery. Will definitely make again.
