cooking spray (such as Pam®)
extra-virgin olive oil, divided
celery, chopped and leaves reserved
2 (14.5 ounce) cans

1 1/2 cups
panko bread crumbs
Parmesan-Romano cheese blend
I'm a big fan of blue cheese and baking my main dishes, so this was perfect. I enjoyed the flavour and how filling it was with the rice, it actually filled the plate but didn't overpower the chicken. I followed the recipe almost exactly aside from proportions, and my boyfriend loved it. Easy to make, and I will definitely make it again.
This chicken dish was just ok for our family. I thought the bleu cheese marinated chicken would have more flavor than it did. The dish did take longer to bake as I had leg/thigh combo pieces of chicken. I liked the crunch of the panko crumbs and Parmesan-Romano cheese blend. The rice had a very mild flavor and was cooked perfectly. Not a bad dinner by any means, and your family might really enjoy it.
