How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides.  Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Step 2

Stir the soup, water, onion powder, black pepper and rice in the skillet and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 15 minutes, stirring once halfway through the cooking time.

Step 3

Stir in the vegetables.  Return the chicken to the skillet.  Sprinkle with the cheese.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender.

Recipe Tips

  • 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.

    The original baked version is much better

    The original recipe is much better. The "skillet" version needs quick cook "Minute" rice (regular rice needs longer cooking or precooked) which is bland at best, The rice needs the longer time to cook slowly and absorb the flavors.

    Loved it.

    Cooked everything separate and then tossed it together. I used minute rice. Turned out great.

    Not what I expected

    I made this in the hopes of having a faster version of the casserole but the rice took forever to cook in this recipe as well. Not the 25 minutes I expected, it has been 45 minutes now and I had to add almost another cup of water to it. I think it might be the soup that slows it down? Next time I will just add the water and seasonings and cook the rice all the way through before adding the soup and veggies and chicken. Adjusted the seasonings as I normally do, 1tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp pepper. The flavor is fine, just wish dinner was ready before 8pm!

    A great base

    I can see why people would rate this low if made exactly as is (and perhaps I should rate it low, too, since I merely used this as a base to make a delicious dinner). I sauteed a diced yellow onion, few cloves of garlic and portobello mushrooms in olive oil until soft, about 7 min, before adding the chicken back into the pan, cut up asparagus spears (in lieu of frozen vegetables), and the remaining ingredients. The result was a delicious and flavourful meal!! Finished off with some high-quality sharp cheddar and this went from a simple weeknight kid-friendly meal to something I'd happily serve for an informal weeknight gathering :) Not sure why so many people comment that the rice wasn't done... Mine was absolutely perfect! Also I suggest salt/peppering the chicken for cooking. I will definitely do this next time as it was the only thing lacking.

    Disappointing/needs adjustments

    I've had some amazing chicken and cheesy rice, this recipe was bland and after following the directions, the veggies were undercooked. This recipe needs something I'm not sure what it is. Something to spice it up a bit, needs more flavor. The chicken turned out good. My recommendation is to either find another recipe or if you're going to use this one cook the veggies prior to making the dish.
