Cook:

Ingredients

2 lb
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
2 Tbsp
olive oil
2 c
river white rice
1 can(s)
cream of chicken soup
1 pkg
dry onion soup mix
1 1/2 c
frozen peas
2 c
shredded cheddar cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Saute chicken in olive oil and season as you like. I personally use Goya's Sazon Liquido, but any salt/pepper/garlic seasoning will be fine.
2
Cook rice as directed on package. The river rice gives the rice a nice sticky texture.
3
Stir onion soup mix into cream of chicken soup and add the mixture into the rice.
4
Stir chicken and frozen peas into rice mixture.
5
Add rice mixture into a 13 x 9 baking dish. Top with cheddar cheese and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is completely melted.
