    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

    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

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

  • Sounds great, but why so many calories? Is it the rice? I think we'll do just brown rice and lower the sauce! yummy and easy! - 6/3/08

  • I forgot to buy sweet and sour sauce, so used stir-fry sauce. The chicken should have been salted and peppered before placing on the foil. Maybe it wouldn't have need that if I'd had the right ingredient. It was very good, anyway, and so easy! - 6/3/08
