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.


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.


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.
