Cook's Tip

For best results in a slow cooker, be sure to use parboiled rice for fluffy, separated rice kernels. Have leftovers? Place extra chicken with rice and beans inside a warm tortilla. Top with cheese and sour cream. Roll tortilla around filling for a new way to enjoy Fiesta Chicken with Rice and Beans.

Would be a very good recipe, especially for teenagers, but the chicken was SO dry. Would cook chicken separately next time,

I made this in my slow-cooker and used instant rice instead of parboiled. It came out great, except like others have noted, that chicken came out very dry. This was EXTREMELY easy and economical to make - and my kids loved it! Will definitely do again!

What a great way to use up leftover ckn. I add ckn last because it's already cooked. I make quesadillas. 1 large tortilla. On 1/2 place refried beans-they work like a glue to hold everything together-then ckn mix-top that with cheese of choice & fold over. I then put this on an aluminum sheet & wrap them individually & freeze. These are great for lunch or dinner. Take pkg out of freezer & place in a flat pan & bake at 425 degrees for 45 minutes.
