I've made this dish twice. The first time, I followed the recipe, and found that as written, it was much too bland for my taste. I made it again tonight, with the following modifications: Instead of 1 tsp season salt, I used 2 teaspoons of McCormick roast chicken seasoning, plus about 1/2 teaspoon each of dill and thyme. I also added a good dose of fresh ground pepper, and used 1 can each of cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup. Much more flavorful the second time around - my family loved it. Great basic recipe!



I have enjoyed this recipe for years only I add a package of dry onion soup mix sprinkled over the top. It gives the dish the extra seasoning that really brings the whole thing together for a great taste. It is an easy one dish meal. I have added brocoli and/or mushrooms in the past as well.



This was great! Since it is just my husband, myself, and my two year old, a recipe this size would have leftovers. Not this time. My husband went back for seconds and thirds! Having said that, I should let you know I made some changes to the recipe. I switched one of the cans of cream of chicken soup for Campbell's creamy chicken verde soup. I added 1/2 cup frozen chopped onion, and instead of the chicken breasts, I used boneless skinless chicken thighs which I laid on top of the rice mixture. I then sprinkled the entire dish with season all. I also sprinkled about a cup of shredded monterey jack cheese and some finely crushed tortilla chips on top for the last 15 minutes without the aluminum foil. I know that is a lot of changes, but it was yummy! I will definitely make this again.
