"This is a nice, quick recipe and it was ok to try once but I won't be making it again. It has too much of a processed taste. I think it would be very good if it was made from scratch and baked in the oven."
"I have not tried this recipe, but I fail to see how it can be considered "healthy" when it contains over 1200mg sodium/serving & uses boxed rice & pre-cooked chicken, so has numerous unhealthy preservatives in it."
