Carribean chicken

Submitted by: NATBAER

Introduction

I found this recipe on spark, but the nutrition info seemed off. I included counts for 1 ln raw chicken breast and uncooked minute brown rice, so this should be more accurate.

    well, I don't take complete credit for the recipe because I only re-posted for more accurate nutritional info. However, it was a hit at our house. I might suggest adding some cayenne to jazz it up a bit. You could at least leave a suggestion for others on how you would make it more flavorful.

  • Absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I made it for lunch and had plenty left over for a lunch or two later. I did add so Lite Soy Sauce for coloring and a little flavor, but it was still wonderful. - 6/13/10
