“Layers of rice, a creamy mixture of chicken and peppers and a Jack cheese topping make up the masterpiece that is Chicken Rice Mexicana! This is a fast and easy way to get the flavor of fajitas from your oven. It is especially good if you grill the chicken meat.” - by AMYALD

"I liked this recipe, however I made a few alterations that really helped. First, I grilled strips of chicken breasts instead of cubed chicken using my George Foreman (took 5 min!) and then when layer..." See moreing it, I added spoonfuls of salsa over the rice. I also used cheddar instead of jack, and it worked very well. I ate mine with sour cream and extra salsa. This has a fajita casserole taste to it, which isn't my hubby's favorite thing but he liked it, especially in the times I have made it since, where I chop the peppers and onion up smaller so they're less noticeable. Even my toddler daughter eats it!"
"This was a great recipe!!!!! I did make some major changes. First I used spanish rice from a box. Then I put chilies, cuman and cilantro to the chicken mixture. My husband put sourcream on his. Th..." See moreis was creamy and really good. I will make this again for sure."
"I changed the recipe a little because I read the reviews that said it need something else. I used 1 1/2 lbs. of chicken and 4 cups of rice. Two cups of rice didn't seem to be enough. I still used t..." See morehe same amount of milk and cream of mushroom soup. The thing that made the big difference was that I added a package of taco seasoning to my chicken before I added the soup and milk. I made it a second time and added a can of diced green chilies. Sprinkle some cheddar cheese on top of the monterey jack. Try it this way and you will love it. A good recipe to play with and change around. Thanks."
