I am giving this a 5 for the flavor. It was simple to put together. I made it as directed and with Kielbasa. My problem was the rice. I did just use plain white and it didn't cook well. So for that part my review would be a 3. I will still make again and try a different brand of rice. The recipe is a keeper!
excellent, I didn't have the tomato, and added cheese!
I too made this with ham instead of chicken and did not put in cayenne due to my young children. Yummy!
This tasted so good, I made mine without the chicken breast and added chopped ham. Definiately going to make again!!
Note: Be SURE to use your typical cheap white rice. I used fancy stuff the first time which took too long to cook and the veggies turned to mush. Otherwise delicious and I can't wait to make it again!
