long-grain white rice
ground black pepper
salt-free herb and spice blend
2 1/4 cups
skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 (16 ounce) packages
chopped mixed vegetables
hot pepper sauce
Good and easy to prepare. The recipe asks for an excessive amount of pepper, making the dish very hot. Had I also added the indicated 2 T of hot sauce, a hole would have been burned through the pot. Glad I tasted before adding hot sauce and was able to thus prevent the dish from becoming inedible.
This reminded me of chicken soup gone wrong where all the broth had evaporated. It is a one timer recipe for us. I did cut back to a quarter tsp of black pepper as recommended and instead of the hot pepper sauce, I used a couple dashes of cayenne which made it peppery enough.
This calls for way too much pepper! Cut the pepper to 1/2 or even 1/4 teaspoon, and it'll be delicious.
I didn't use the chicken in the recipe, as I only needed a side for our lobster dinner last night. I used basmati rice and my own medley of vegies. The whole family enjoyed this very much Gayle!
I made the vegetable version and it was the perfect side dish for my daughter's birthday dinner Grandson ate 4 large helpings. It was easy to prepare leaving my attention to the more complicated main dish.
We didn't care for this very much. Sorry! I'm not sure why, but the flavors just did not seem to work together. I LOVE black pepper; it's among my favorite spices. This, to me, is what made this even possible to eat.
This was delicious! I was looking for a great chicken & rice recipe & found it here...so moist, too. I did modify it to suit my family's taste, however: I did omit the hot sauce & next time I will also leave out the pepper...it was too hot & spicy. Also, I substituted a carton of chicken broth for the bouillion cubes (I personally don't use them because of the MSG.) Because of the amount of broth, I didn't need to add the water. Also, used just one bag of vegetables & that was plenty.
