    Wasn’t to bad, might doctor it up some next time around. Worth a repeat

    This was delicious. I had seasoned the chicken before I cooked it with oregano not realizing that the recipe called for oregano while assembling the casserole. So it was a little too much oregano. But I do recommend adding some seasoning to the chicken while cooking.

    The rice didn’t cook, it was a total waste. I would cook the rice beforehand.

    I used marble cheese. Its good but could use more flavor. I used brown rice. I cooked it half way then put it in the casserole and it turned out good.

    Quite good! I like the versatility of the dish. We'll be adding more components in later versions.

    It was a really good new dish! I used 1.5 cups of water and 1.5 cups of rice. My roommates and boyfriend loved it.

    made it tonight....really good. I only added 1 cup of chicken broth, should of used a cup and 1/4. Next time I will saute some mushrooms with the chicken and add it in.

    Pretty good. Definitely less broth then it calls for but it’s good

    Just made this tonight. I would suggest a can and a half of broth. Two cans is to much. Also add more cheese. Wasn't bad just a little runny.

    Good, but I added spicy sausage meat and olives, so I can’t really comment

    Great recipe. I used 1 1/2 cup rice and 3 cup chicken broth. I added 1 can diced tomatoes on top of chicken and peppers before I added the cheese. Maybe recipes could use a little more chicken but taste was great.

    My family went nuts for this dish. We added a can of Italian diced tomatoes. There were NO LEFTOVERS!!! That’s how we determine if it’s a hit not. This one was a hit. My grandchildren ages, 6, 4 and 1 are all picky eaters. Not with this recipe they gobbled it right up and asked for more.

    This was tasty and easy to make. I didn't have cooked chicken or even fully thawed chicken so I cooked some frozen chicken breasts & thighs in my Instant Pot until they were slightly under done (so it wouldn't overcook in the oven), I added spinach to recipe and winged it when it came to seasonings. The website calls for 2 cans of chicken stock so I used that and it came out a little soupy but not too bad. At the end I sprinkled on Parmesan cheese and bit more of the Italian blend cheese and broiled it until it was golden and bubbly.

    Very tasty, pan seemed a bit big. May try smaller pan next time.

    Loved it, will be making again soon. The whole family enjoyed it. I used sour cream and instead of cream cheese, yummy.

    The recipe on the actual webpage calls for 2 cans of chicken stock, versus only one can on the yummly ingredient summary. I used the 2 cans and it was way too much liquid. Probably would have been ok if only one can was used.
