This could be a good recipe with some revisions. So many complaints about the na's, what about giving a recipe 5 stars when they made four changes? It's not even the same recipe being rated. My reasons for only three stars are, as others have mentioned, it needs more rice or will be soupy. The bake time is not enough for wild rice, it needs to be increased. Even after just the browning of the chicken, it has started cooking enough that the bake time here is too long.
This dish turned out to be good. Next time I make this dish I will either add a little more rice or make sure that during the thickening step to boil off more of the liquid so that it isn't quite as soupy when you take it out of the oven. Overall it's a good dish.
I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs (just because I prefer them) but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was SO GOOD! I do have to agree with firecraker about people reviewing and then N/A. What's up with that? You like the sound of it but don't want to try it? Kind of silly, but whatever. I love your recipes, my only comment about them (other than the ones I have made were all really great) is that I really wish you would include nutritional information for them. That would really be a big help.
This is a fabulous recipe. Instead of chicken breast I used bone in thighs and drumsticks as that is what I had on hand, and I trimmed well, and removed the skin. I used 8 oz basmati rice instead of the wild rice packette, and increased the broth to 30 oz using chicken broth powder not canned. Also since we love veggies, I added 1 cup finely diced celery and onions along with a very generous portion of brown mushrooms (less than perfect from No Frills). It was so good that my family were taking seconds and still had at least 2 large servings which they will fight over as leftovers. Total cost less than $6.00 for a gourmet style meal! Love it.
I made this exactly per the recipe and it was fabulous! The only change I will make in the future is to lessen the amount of chicken as the rice was delicious enough on its own.
I'm with you and SusanJoy. People shouldn't just give star ratings. They should comment as well.
This turned out nice, I would say to either add a little more rice or make sure that during the thickening step to let some of the liquid boil off more so that it isn't quite as soupy when you take it out
I agree with you, firecraker! The reviewers are just letting their star ratings review the dish but I think, as you, they should list what they liked and/or disliked about the dish in a little detail@
I'd like to try this, but I'd like to read some of the reviews. All of them have NA's. How the heck am I supposed to know if these people liked it or what they could suggest. This is the only thing I don't like about this site.
