“This is very easy to make, with ingredients that you might usually have on hand. It gets its flavor from dry soup mix. Try it with some fresh, steamed vegetables.” - by Karen

"This was a hit with my family!! I substituted onion soup mix for the chicken soup mix and the flavor popped. Also, used brown rice which took a little longer to cook but tasted so yummy! Simple and..." See more delicious!"
"This recipie is easy to make on a busy day, plus my family thought it tasted great. A red bell pepper also works well in this dish, if someone doesn't like green peppers. ..." See more"
"Although I changed a few things, this was a great base recipe. First, I used olive oil to brown the chicken. I used the boneless thighs I had in the freezer, which stayed nice and juicy. I used carrot..." See mores and celery for the veggies and I might even use peas next time. Lastly, I used onion soup mix as others had suggested. It turned out great and so amazingly easy to make. The only thing I might do different would be to use regular rice instead of instant. The rice was a little soggy for my taste. Thanks for this great recipe!"
