How to Make Cheesy chicken and rice bake


  • 1Saute 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.
  • 2Cook rice as directed on package. The river rice gives the rice a nice sticky texture.
  • 3Stir onion soup mix into cream of chicken soup and add the mixture into the rice.
  • 4Stir chicken and frozen peas into rice mixture.
  • 5Add 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.
