Question for Test Kitchen. Can brown rice be substituted in this recipe?

Hi there! Yes, brown rice can be substituted in this recipe, however the seasoning packet is used to season the chicken, so without that, the chicken will need to be seasoned with salt, pepper, onion powder, dried parsley, paprika and garlic powder. Thanks for asking, we're glad to answer!

This dish was very flavorful, but the rice became overcooked/too soft.

What seasonings to use instead of rice packet.?

Hey there. If you don't use a rice packet then season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley, and paprika. Happy cookin'!

This went over very well with my family. Even my picky 17 yr old ate several helpings. I used thighs, regular rice, (which I browned in a skillet first,) and my own combination of spices in place of the packet.

Use thighs! Always good substitute

Could I substitute boneless/skinless chicken breasts

I like the ingredients! Oh will someone define to me what comfort food is? I eat stuff I enjoy. Maybe I am missing out on something?

Comfort food is something that you always head for or get hungry for when your feeling stressed, depresses, upset or even really happy, but usually the opposite. I crave pasta or potatoes when I feel stressed they COMFORT me. Hope this helps.

Could chicken breast be used instead of chicken legs?

Sure you can use chicken breast in this recipe. You may have to increase the cooking time to accomondate the increase in size of the amount of meat.

I'd be concerned about trading white breast meat for the dark chicken legs, particularly if you are using boneless chicken breasts. The dark meat is much more moist.

Cut the chicken breast into strips...perfect.

If you want to substitute chicken breasts for the legs, you could cut the breasts into strips, or large cubes. This will not take as long to cook as if they were left whole.
