Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

You can do this without the oil, without the salt and reduce the sodium and fat a heck of a lot. Just throw the chicken bouillion in with the rice when you boil it, add cayenne/cajun spice/chili powder and then garnish with chopped green onions when it's finished. Submitted by:

Very Good! I cut the salt to almost nothing and added 3/4 t of cumin and cilantro, next time I will increase both of these and will try using salsa instead of tomato sauce to add a bit more flavor. Thank you for sharing! Submitted by:

Great and EASY recipe. I was looking for a rice recipe, and I had VERY limited ingredients. This came out perfect, just like in a Mexican restaurant. It went great with pinto beans. A lot of sodium, so it won't be good for people trying to cut down on it, but otherwise, it's amazing! Submitted by:

Made this without the oil or browning the rice to save 80 calories a cup (which is a lot just for some oil WOW), just tossed everything in the rice cooker. Used half the bullion dissolved in Chicken broth, came out great! Submitted by:

I halved the salt and it was still too salty (probably ruined some of the taste for me). I'd say go for 1- 1.5 tsp salt...you can always add more to taste at the end. Submitted by:
