This homey combination is one of my most requested chicken recipes. It's a snap to assemble using a boxed rice mix. Plus, it's low in calories. —Joyce Unruh of Shipshewana, Indiana

"This simple recipe was good for a quick weeknight meal. I didn't have garlic on hand so I just mixed garlic salt with pepper and sprinkled that over the chicken. I also used a butter & herb long grain & wild rice mix."

"This recipe looked appetizing in the book, but I didn't like it for 2 reasons. First, I didn't like the taste of the seasoning packet from the wild rice mix box (I used Uncle Ben's Original) - it was way too strong! Second, the chicken lacked something - salt maybe? Probably this recipe could be tweaked to be good, but I won't waste more time on it."
