No Peek Chicken Rice Recipe
- You can use chicken breast or chicken tenders for this recipe.
- Sometimes I add a small can of mushrooms to change it up.
- You can also melt cheddar cheese over it. For this addition, take the foil off the last 5 minutes, add 1 to 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese and return to the oven. Cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Additionally, you can use one box of Uncle Ben’s original recipe rice instead of the white rice. If you use this, omit the Montreal Chicken seasoning. Personally, I prefer white rice as the recipe indicates.
- If you can’t find the Montreal chicken seasoning mix, you can make it. I have included the recipe in the notes of the printable recipe below. Furthermore, you can use your favorite chicken seasoning if you prefer.
