Velveeta Cheesy Chicken & Rice Skillet

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by rusted_essence

I decided to refer to my cookbook collection to find a tasty meal last night and this was the ticket. Richard prepared it and was tickled ppink with how well it turned out. We made 4 large breasts so we used some more oil than called for and cooked them slowly so they wouldn't burn etc. This came from my Favorite brand Name Best-Loved Recipies cookbook. This tasted like rice a roni with moist chicken... yummy!

Beautiful and easy. Needed a last minute that was both hearty and didn't take a lot of ingredients. I think this will freeze well, too, which is superb! So glad I happened upon this, and I took the advice of one who added rosemary. I added thyme and rosemary to the soup. Delicious. I cooked regular rice and added 2 cups cooked rice as I don't usually have minute rice on hand. Rice was cooked with a little coriander and I added a can of sliced carrots at the end.
