Delicious , easy and healthy. I substituted orzo for the rice so had to cook it slightly longer. I didn't have stewed tomatoes so used diced and I served the green beans on the side. Made a Greek salad from elsewhere on this site . The whole thing was delicious. A definite keeper!

Made this last night. I decreased the rice to 1 1/3 cup and we used crushed tomatoes, but it was great and we're going to make it again.

This was really easy and delicious . The only thing I changed was I used a can of chicken broth instead of the water. I will definitely make this again

I used a can of mixed veggies instead of green beans. It needs a little kick for taste..we just cant put our finger on what yet though, but it was pretty good

Loved it. I didn't know what to do and it was time to cook dinner, so I didn't have all the ingredients. I used marinated artichoke hearts instead of the olives and regular white rice instead of instant brown. Did add boullion to the water. Everyone loved it and we decided it would be good with mushrooms and zucchini as a side dish without the chicken. Will try that next time.
