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.

    Thanks for your review. To add more flavor, season the chicken with salt, pepper or other herbs/spices as desired before sautéing in step 1. Also, the recipe was developed with regular long grain white rice, not minute rice. Check to assure you used a 12-inch skillet. If a smaller skillet was used that could affect the cooking time of the rice. If the rice is not cooked enough at 15 minutes, simmer a few minutes longer until desired tenderness is achieved.

    This was a great easy week night meal

    Leave out the black pepper. Mine turned out annoyingly peppery You can add season later. Also, the chicken cooked fine. But I would like it better if the chicken wa cut up like fried rice.

    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!
