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.
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.
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.
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.
I added a can of mild green chilis (and of course extra cheese) - Spectacular!
Yeah wow this was awesome. I added one can of mild green diced chilis and of course doubled up on the cheese, and it was wonderful!
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.
Cooked everything separate and then tossed it together. I used minute rice. Turned out great.
