  1. This was delicious! I was looking for a great chicken & rice recipe & found it moist too. I did modify it to suit my family's taste however: I did omit the hot sauce & next time I will also leave out the was too hot & spicy. Also I substituted a carton - Read more ...
  2. This reminded me of chicken soup gone wrong where all the broth had evaporated. It is a one timer recipe for us. I did cut back to a quarter tsp of black pepper as recommended and instead of the hot pepper sauce I used a couple dashes of cayenne which made it peppery enough.

  8. I made the vegetable version and it was the perfect side dish for my daughter's birthday dinner Grandson ate 4 large helpings. It was easy to prepare leaving my attention to the more complicated main dish.
