    this sound really great except I would also jazz it up with some salsa and black beans and use brown rice instead of white PLUS it is simple enough to give to a single fellow I know who doesn't cook well. - 2/23/09

    I too added to this recipe to give it more flavor. I used chopped cooked chicken, brown rice, corn, salsa, black beans, fresh cilantro, taco seasoning and sauteed onions. Mixed it all up, baked 35 min, topped with cheese, then served with light sour cream and baked tortilla chips. Yum! - 3/17/08

    I am with stacy_md. I was expecting more.
    I added sauted onions, 1/2 c. chicken broth and 1/2 packet taco seasoning after cooking the day before. I mixed in 1 can black beans with cheese on top. Baked another 15 minutes.
    The result was more flavor and more moist. - 9/11/07

  • I quadrupled this recipe to feed my whole family. Used four chicken breasts, then three cups rice, three cups salsa, two cups water and 2 cans cream corn. The cooking time had to be extended to 75 minutes but the finished meal was DELICIOUS! My family loved it and there are plenty of leftovers! - 5/20/11

  • I can't get passed the sodium for one helping. And if everyone is adding taco seasoning, doesn't it make it have more sodium? - 1/4/09

  • I have a hard time understanding all the love for this recipe. The only thing I changed was using brown rice instead of white, but I found it to be bland. Maybe if the chicken had been seasoned before going into the casserole it would have helped. The chicken itself was just so dull. - 9/11/07

  • Love, love, love this recipe! I, too, thought the full serving size was far too much, so I put half on my plate and the other half in the refrigerator for lunch tomorrow. I also added a little lime juice to the chicken and a side of 1/2 cup black beans and 2 Tbsp FF sour cream. Delish! - 8/26/07

  • I don't understand where all of the sodium comes from. perhaps if I make my own salsa? That would be my sodium limit for the day (I can only have 1,500mg

  • I made this last night and loved it! My daughter liked it too. Simple, Healthy and Goood. I will certainly make this again and again. I added corn at the bottom. I served it with black beans and a bit of light sour cream. It really does taste like a good restaurant dish with little work. - 8/14/07

  • This was really good and very easy to make! This will be a keeper in my house. I followed the suggestion and had my dinner with the black beans.
    I was fine with only 1/2 of this serving size, which turned out to be 5 WW points. With 1/2 of the serving size and the beans I was pretty full. - 8/8/07

  • So good! I did what StaceyBoice did, but added a can of regular low sodium corn. I also added some chopped cilantro and when it was done I squeezed a lime over it to add more kick. Served it with black beans and lf sour cream and it was fantastic! - 8/4/07
