This was some good stuff. Of course, I can never follow a recipe to the "T". I always tweak something in it. I cooked the rice in the poaching liquid from the chicken, I threw in some shredded cheddar along with the veveeta, tossed in some frozen peas and carrots and topped in all off with some french fried onions instead of the cracker crumbs. My kids went nuts over it and my husband got up in the morning and ate it for breakfast. He said it was even better reheated. Thanx for a great recipe...this one is a keeper.

This was very good, and a very creamy delightful switch from the usual run of the mill "Chicken & Rice" recipes. But I have got to say after making it a few times I tried a more gourmet tasting flair to it and it worked beautifully. What I used was 1/2 gruyere cheese and 1/2 good cheddar. Then I diced 4 large chicken breast halves into small bite size pieces and placed approx. 3 cups of large sliced fresh mushooms in a bowl and sprinkled 1/3 cup of white wine on top and tossed the mushrooms and chicken to absorb the wine and let sit while I prepared the cheese sauce. I also prepared the rice using the water I had boiled the breasts in and strained it and added some chicken base. I would definitly serve this for company done this way and recommend having fun using the basics of this recipe to your own tastes. It is a keeper!!!

This recipe was not a very big hit with the family. I tried it again without the Velveeta and used cheddar, also did it with uncooked rice and baked longer. this seemed to have added more flavor to the rice. My famiily liked this version more.
