    Loved it! I easily made this for two and used a 12-oz frozen 3-pepper blend. Also, here's a tip for making brown rice: On a Saturday I make a 2-pound bag. When it's done & cool, I portion out into baggies in 1-cup amts. Put them in a freezer bag. When needed, microwave 1 min/baggie! - 9/5/12

    I thought the dish was delish and so did my husband. I baked mine at 350 for 30 minutes instead of grilling though. This is definately going on my list for future meals. - 1/5/10

    Delicious. I cooked it in the oven at 425 for about 25 min. I used brown rice and made my own sweet and sour sauce. Will definitely make again! - 3/7/09

  • I made this last night. The only change I made was not using green pepper (I used red, yellow, and orange). I grilled them for about 22 minutes over high heat. Used minute brown ready rice. It was amazing. I will definitely be making this again. Can't wait to have the leftovers today!! - 7/9/14

  • I thought the total calories was a little high for a chicken dinner dish. I don't think 4 oz of chicken cooked yields 286 calories. - 6/15/14

  • SOOOO EASY! And the sweet and sour sauce that spark people has is great on it! Very easy to make and put together. I followed it to a T. I felt like I was eating at a fancy restaurant. So good. I will for sure be making this again! - 7/30/12

  • My kid were asking for second and third helpings of this! And that is a miracle in itself! This meal was fantastic. I did bake it at 400 for 25 minutes, and the chicken was quite juicy! This will definitely become a family staple. - 11/1/10

  • I made this on the grill. My husband and I loved this recipe. We used a bit extra sweet and sour sauce for dipping, otherwise we loved it. Next time I think I will double the veggies. Yum!! - 6/22/10

    I used the regular Uncle Ben's Brown rice that takes about 25 minutes. Any kind of rice works though! I hope you like it!
