  • Tip:
  • About 1 1/4 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts can be substituted for a 2 to 3 pound broiler/fryer chicken. Twelve ounces or 3/4 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts equals about 2 cups of cubed cooked chicken.

This was a wonderful recipe although I changed it up a little. I didn't have the particular brand of Tomatoes so I used normal Tomatoes. I sauteed the Garlic and added onion and red pepper. I added additional 1/2 cup of Chicken Broth and 1/4 cup of White Dry Wine with a Pinch of Oregano and the required amount of Basil. This made a lot of liquid. The rice cooked in the juices and eventually all the liquid evaporated, although the rice (brown rice) was a tiny bit crunchy so i cooked it a little longer. Next time i will probably cook the rice part way through before adding it to the pot. Thank you for a great recipe base. Will definately make again!

This was awesome! I'm a poor college student and I didn't have all the ingredients (as specified) so I improvised. Instead on using the cans, I used maybe 3 cups of tomatoes and instead of rice pilaf I used a Lipton Chicken flavored rice side. I also added a little white rice as well. I also used probably 2.5 cups water. Also, i added spices to the mix (Garlic Powder, Salt and Pepper.....). All in all, this was DELICIOUS!

Easy good recipe. I used jasmine rice instead of pilaf. I also added a half cup of chicken broth. It was very tasty.

I thought this was a pretty good recipe, but it lacked seasoning. I'll try it again but I'll add something to give it a little more zing.

This recipe was quite good - though I used my own canned tomatoes, and regular basmati rice. Also topped with shredded cheddar cheese; I really enjoyed it, and the kids ate it too.

I made this for a large group and everyone loved it. There weren't any leftovers. It was so simple and quick to make too.

This was pretty good! I wish I could give it 4 1/2 stars. I only had the brown rice pilaf so I had to cook it much longer and add chicken broth. I think next time, I would cover it part of the time to cook it faster. I didn't have fresh basil so I had to use dried. We'll certainly make it again!
