  1. Love it! I added onion and mushrooms as suggested. I didn t have green beans so used frozen peas instead. Yum!
  2. We omitted green beans & had Lima beans on the side. We like green beans, just not cooked in things.
  3. We really enjoyed this dish. The rice was delicious with the Italian dressing flavors. I used can green beans because that was what I had on hand. I seasoned the chicken with salt pepper and garlic for extra flavor.
  4. Yum!! I made this tonight and the family LOVED it! I loved how easy it was to prepare! It's a keeper!
  5. Skipped the italian dressing as our kids dislike anything "vinegar-y" seasoned chicken with oregano & sea salt. Also used chicken stock from the freezer instead of broth. Used leftover rice. No leftovers - H ate the beans but liked the chicken best V was the opposite. Next time with broccoli? I liked that this recipe - Read more ...
  6. Really really good and so easy and quick! I added some sliced mushrooms.
  7. I just made this for my husband and me for dinner tonight and loved it. The rice had a lot of flavor with the almonds and green beans. The chicken was tender and flavorfull. All I did was add salt and pepper when I was cooking the chicken. This is a keeper for sure.
  8. This is my wife's favorite meal! The only changes I've made are to add 8 oz. of sliced mushrooms and one diced onion at the beginning, and saute them when the chicken goes in. Great every time!
