I dont see why you cant add a large can of stewed tomatoes instead of 2 cans of soup for less sodium.I would season with cumin and chili powder so it is not bland though.Also some cilantro if you like!

There has to be a healthier way to make this without the two cans of soup.....way too much sodium

I'd just like to know if there's a delicious baked chicken and tomato(actual stewed tomatoes) rice casserole out there. I love baked chicken with garlic seasonings and stewed tomatoes in rice( long-grained wild rice). However I'd like the recipe to retains it's moisture and NOT become DRY. PLEASE help me out with this recipe. P.S. - I love thyme, poultry , cumin,rosemary seasonings with light seasoning salt. Thanks, JamesW. :-)

Has anyone made this "as is"? How did it turn out? Boiling the chicken in plain water would make it too bland. I'd at least boil it in some chicken stock and add some seasonings. That chicken did NOT look like it was cooked thoroughly.

Souds good, but i would saute the onions to bring out the sweetness of the onion and add some fresh garlic and cilantro....

My daughter is a vegetarian; I think black beans could be substituted for the chicken and still be a delicious casserole. This would make her very happy.
