A few cooking tips to make the chicken more juicy and more tasty. I usually use garlic salt and black pepper to season the chicken before I brown it. You are going to want to press the seasoning onto the meat so that when you put it in the oil it doesnt come off. Another thing I do is that while the chicken is cooking i continually add either chicken stock or water with a chicken boulion to the meat. Add it in small amount, about 1/4 c and let it cook off until the chicken is fully cooked. Also if you dont have cream of chicken try cream of mushroom and you can even sub the mushrooms for the brocolli
So I have to agree with most people that the chicken is really bland. I even added a bunch of things to it before cooking because of the comments. I came to realize later that the seasons that I added were washed off while being browned in the oil (ah...duh!). So I recommend seasoning your chicken while it's cooking with the rice and broccoli. And when the recipe says brown the chicken in the oil, you really need to cook it a lot longer than browning it otherwise you might end up with really soggy broccoli and rice because you'll have to cook the chicken A LOT longer than 5 minutes like the recipe says :) (yes I'm talking with experience)
I used garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper (I would have used paprika too, but I was out). The key to making sure it "sticks" is that your oil is HOT. If it's not hot, only warm, the spices will "wash off"...but even with that, it still seasons the rice mixture, so that's not the end of the world! I also used 1/2 brown rice and 1/2 white rice and I think the brown rice adds more flavor.
