    Recipe Tips

    Elevate the flavor in this dish by cooking the rice in chicken broth instead of water. You can also add in some creole seasoning for extra kick.

    Use your favorite variety of store-bought tomato sauce and feel free to use rotisserie chicken in this recipe to speed things up.

    This dish is loaded with flavor and also with whole grains from the brown rice. However, if you just have our  Success® White Rice or Success® Jasmine Rice on hand, feel free to swap them in for the brown rice. Either one will work well here.
