California Chicken

Dish: Entrees
Dish Type: Game
Cooking Method: Stove Top
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20-30 minutes

  • 3 - large Chicken Breasts
  • 1 box - Minute Rice
  • 1/2 box - Velveeta Cheese
  • 2 bags - California Blend

Boil chicken in a large pan with plenty of water till center isn't pink, don't drain water. After chicken is done put the california blend in the same water you boilded the chicken in. Start water for a full box of rice according to box directions. Cook veggies until tender. While the veggies are cooking cube or tear the chicken and cube the cheese. When rice and veggies are done you layer the ingredients like this in a large bowl  Rice, cheese, chicken  and california blend. Cover and let sit for about 5 minutes, mix well to coat all the ingredients with the melted cheese. Enjoy 


We have a large family so I don't know how much you would use for a single person or a couple of people. We always have left overs on this as it will make a large tupperware bowl full, although it never goes to waste!  Enjoy and let me know what you think!

I used a pound of shredded Cheddar instead of velveeta and it was great. I also cut recipe in half.
