  1. I made this for dinner tonight and loved it! I had to add an extra 1/2 cup of water at the end, but otherwise everything went just as planned! I can’t wait to make it again soon for meal prep.

  2. I used cauliflower rice instead (I read the recipe wrong and bought it pre-riced) and it is completely undetectable. It blends right in with the regular rice.

  3. I made this last night and it is SO GOOD. I did the same thing as Marie above and used cauli-rice. Seriously, I want to make it again tonight!

  4. This is DELICIOUS! I didn’t have cauliflower but did have cauliflower rice, so did a combination of brown rice & cauliflower rice. Servings were huge but we didn’t have any leftovers because it was SO GOOD! Husband requested I make it again very soon & I’m more than happy to… one pan, around 30 minutes max til dinner is served, so easy and delicious!

  5. Winner, winner chicken dinner! This recipe is DELICIOUS! I was running late in my day yesterday and wanted to get dinner finished before hubby got home. I was able to make everything quickly and love that it was a one pan meal! The salsa verde had just the right kick to spice up the dish, and it made so much that we have leftovers for a few days! Next time I think I’ll add a few more extra veggies in. This will be added into our regular rotation for sure!
