My new favorite dinner. It’s filling without being heavy. I made minor changes - omitted the oil from the rice, used chicken tenders because that’s what I had and cooked the chicken in the oven instead of skillet. Topped with pico de gallo. Definite keeper!
This has become one of my family's absolute favorite meals. I get begged for it almost every week. I'm not a fan of cilantro so I use a little less than a fourth cup but I don't dislike it in this recipe. I usually have to leave out the lime zest too because I can't get actual limes all the time, just the bottled juice. But it works fine. All I add on top is a good bit of mexican cheese and it's an amazing meal. Will be making this for years to come.
This is definitely keeper. Although I made some alterations, the concept of this recipe is truly good. It's actually better than what you'd get in a restaurant. Chicken was moist and the flavors melded together.
Delish! Made it two nights ago, and the leftovers the next day for lunch are just as good!
This is so good, easy and healthy!! I make this and portion it out for lunches for my husband and to take to work!! He loves it, and I love that he isn’t eating fast food!!
"Better than the restaurant version" was my husband's reaction! This is a fantastic "copycat" recipe if you're into the fast-food big burrito places but want to control the salt and other questionable ingredients. Or if you simply live too far from one of those restaurants when a craving hits! It's also incredibly easy to customize to your tastes.While the amount of chicken the recipe called for was perfect for our family, I will double the rice mixture the next time I make it. With the rice, there's no need for the added carbs of a tortilla!
This is a keeper! Easy to put together but very light and flavorful, especially with the addition of the toppings. We added sour cream, salsa, Mexican blend cheese, and jalapenos.
This dish is tasty and quick! I topped mine with sour cream and green onion. I would definitely make this again and experiment with different toppings!
Yum! I substituted brown rice, and we used cheddar and sour cream for toppings. Will definitely make again.
Excellent! i would absolutely make these again - both flavorful and quick. I omitted the lime peel and substituted a chicken rice side for the long grain rice, but otherwise made no changes. I decided to use some leftover pinto beans and added some guacamole and Mexican cheese at the end. My family gobbled it up. Came together in about 30 minutes, no one complained, and everyone ate. Making this one again!
