I used minute rice, chicken broth instead of water as suggested and I also seasoned my rice with onion powder and basil as suggested. It was a quick and easy meal. It tasted good. I cut up my thin sliced chicken breast so I didn't have to cook it any extra time rice and chicken was done.
I've made this twice now, and it's very good! Chicken is moist and rice has some decent flavor! Definitely a good "what do I do with these defrosted chicken breasts" kind of meal! I used cream of chicken and cream of celery, both are good. I also seasoned the chicken breasts separately before adding to rice, added some frozen peas and corn and once I removed the foil and added the cheese, I stuck it back in the oven for 5 minutes on high broil to get crispy cheesy taste. Great versatile recipe (I've used pepper jack cheese and mexican blend cheese- both different and both very good).
This was yummy! I added some things because of other reviews. Instead of water I used chicken broth, I also mixed chicken gravy mix in the rice, I seasoned both the rice and chicken with oregano, onion powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper and it was very flavorful. My husband and I fought for the leftovers. Super easy, we will be making this again!
