How to Make It

Step 1

Season the chicken with the garlic powder and black pepper.

Step 2

Cook the chicken in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides. Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Step 3

Heat the broth and thyme in the skillet over medium-high heat to a boil. Stir in the rice. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the peas. Return the chicken to the skillet. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender. Stir the cheese into the rice mixture before serving.

Recipe Tips

  • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.

    Making this tonight!!

    I'm making this for dinner tonight but going to try brown rice instead of white. Hoping that works just as well :)

    Chicken with Savory Herbed Rice

    I agree with the other reviewer who suggested regular rice instead of instant rice. I think I might try it with whole grain rice next time. The kids seem to like it, though, and that's a plus in my book!

    Chicken with Savory Herbed Rice

    Next time I will use regular rice(and a little more fluid) cook for @15min then add the peas for the last 5-8 minutes ...I didn't really like the texture of the quick rice. However, it was very tasty overall
