    I made this tonight and put it over romaine lettuce - like a taco salad. It was filling and awesome. My DH even liked it. This is definitely a keeper. The only changes I made was I used "rotel diced tomatoes" drained and rinsed and used more garlic, added cumin & paprika. Thank you - 6/19/10

    Even my kids liked this one! Easy and quick to make. We used ground turkey in place of the chicken and Rotelle Habenaro Diced Tomatoes. Great if you like it HOT! - 1/6/10

    You could save even more money by grinding the chicken yourself. You can find chicken breasts (boneless skinless) for $1.99 on sale! Then, just cut them into cubes and put in the food processor and pulse until ground. It really works! - 11/11/08

  • this recipe was eatable but that was about it. it was too bland. i had to use a little salt and my husband used tapatio. we wrapped the mixture in whole grain tortillas, but ,even with the hot sauce, he still left half on on his plate. we don't know what to do with the leftovers now :/ - 1/31/12

  • I tried it tonight. It was really good, though I added 2 T roasted garlic tomato paste, 1/2 t each cumin & paprika for extra flavor. Also, I used 1 can Fire Roasted Tomatoes Salsa Style from Adli's or you could substitute Rotel's for the diced tomato. I used Paul Dean's house seasoning instead, too. - 11/16/11

  • This sounds yummy--but the nutrition info has to be off a bit. With that much chicken in the recipe there should be over 20 grams of protein per serving. - 4/2/09

  • I'll admit I didn't expect much from this recipe. I decided to try it because I had all of the ingredients. We were pleasantly surprised by the great flavor! Even my 5 year old loved it! Our first foray with ground chicken. Very successful! We'll make this again and again. - 2/6/09

  • WHOA! This is WAY more than 4 servings, even if you don't add any rice to it! It is a HUGE pot (and I am a "healthy" eater). I would add more garlic and some adobo sauce to zip it up! - 12/9/08

  • I use lean ground turkey, add cayenne pepper (Bam!), and serve over naked baked potatoe. Probably healthier over the brown rice though. - 12/4/08

  • I use canned chicken and add a can of corn. Serve it over brown rice. Tastes great, takes less time and cost per serving is much lower. - 11/12/08

  • What is Grape Seed Oil? What are the advantages? - 11/8/08

    Its similar to Olive Oil, and can be found in the same spot at the market. I have read that it helps lower bad cholesterol while raising the good one. I think it was in Bob Greenes book.
