I made this for dinner tonight and we cleaned our plates. It is easy to prepare. I followed the recipe except I used baby carrots and chicken broth since I didn't have any white wine on hand. It is going into my T&T (tried and true) file and we will be having this delicious meal again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor.

Made just as written...we loved it, even picky autistic son who reads recipes while I'm making them and sometimes states that he won't eat what I'm making because there's an ingredient in it he doesn't care for or is unfamiliar with. ( I'll often memorize recipes so he can't read them!) In this case it was onion, but he tasted the finished product and had two large servings! Quick and easy....we'll be having this again.

Made this for dinner tonight. The only thing I changed was I didn't add any green pepper. But only because I didn't have any. But it was delicious and I'll definitely make it again. I also used chicken broth when I made the rice.

Had a lot of flavor. I liked that it had veggies and I also put a little celery in.

Thumbs up from every one of my family...even a picky chicken eater! I added mushrooms too.

I made this for dinner tonight, it was a winner! The only changes I made were that I used red bell peppers and vegetable broth. Turned out so good.

This stuff is sooooo good just as written! If you don't like spice, you'll want to cut back on the Cajun seasoning and black pepper. Don't change a thing for me though.

Very good. Hubby and I had no problem with this. I did use a red pepper instead of a green one and added some chopped celery along with the rest of the veggies. Thanks for the recipe.

The wine and Cajun seasoning combine to make a very flavorful dish. I had to cook it longer because I used bone-in skinless chicken thighs. It makes plenty of delicious white sauce so be sure to use a deep enough skillet.
