What a great rice recipe! The broth makes the rice almost creamy. And it's even better the second day. Read More

This recipe will be good by making the following changes: eliminate all the water; just cook the rice in the broth. Cut amount of peas in half; after rice is cooked mix cheese in throughout. Sprinkle even more cheese on top with cracker crumbs. Very easy to make tastes good and healthy. Read More

I agree with the last reviewer--what is with all that water?? If I bother to make this again I would completely eliminate the water and cook the rice in the chicken broth. Also there are far to many peas I would rather a pea and carrot mixture in this. The cheese needs to be spread through the dish not just on top. And I think I would drizzle some melted butter over the crushed crackers. Read More

This recipe sucks and needs some help! 6 cups of water!!! WHAT well dont use that much unless you want your rice floating. The cheese needs to be inside as well as on top and 1 can of peas is plenty! Just forget the 6 cups of water and make the rice like you normally would. Just dont follow this recipe or you will be disappointed with the outcome like I was what a waste of all my ingredients.

I only give it 4 stars because of the changes I made. At the advice of the other reviewers I omitted the water and cooked the rice in just the broth. Cut the peas to (1) can and mixed the cheese into the rice before baking. I also added (1) t. salt and 1/2 t. pepper. My wife who usually turns her nose up at rice loved it! It was good the next day too. Thanks Jessica. Read More

This recipe was not worth the effort. It was essentially rice cooked in broth with some peas thrown in. I agree with all the previous reviewers when they suggest that you should just cook the rice in the broth-skip the water. We eat alot of rice and I use a rice cooker and I found this recipe more work than it was worth. Read More

THE RECIPE IS OKAY...IT JUST SEEMS TO BE MISSING SOMETHING. ALSO IT WOULDN'T BE BAD IF THE CHEESE WAS SPRINKLED THROUGHOUT INSTEAD OF JUST THE TOP. Read More

This was wonderful....I changed a tiny bit and used velveeta cheese with 1/4 cup milk and used a bag of frozen veggies it was great! The buttery crackers on the top was a great idea...Thank you for sharing this! Read More
