What a great rice recipe! The broth makes the rice almost creamy. And it's even better the second day.

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.

I only give it 4 stars because of the changes I made. At the advice of the other reviewers, I omitted the water and cooked the rice in just the broth. Cut the peas to (1) can and mixed the cheese into the rice before baking. I also added (1) t. salt and 1/2 t. pepper. My wife who usually turns her nose up at rice loved it! It was good the next day too. Thanks Jessica.

This recipe was not worth the effort. It was essentially rice cooked in broth with some peas thrown in. I agree with all the previous reviewers when they suggest that you should just cook the rice in the broth-skip the water. We eat alot of rice and I use a rice cooker and I found this recipe more work than it was worth.

We cut back a little bit on the water, and it came out great. My three year old who doesnt even like rice asks for this dish!

This was wonderful....I changed a tiny bit and used velveeta cheese with 1/4 cup milk and used a bag of frozen veggies, it was great! The buttery crackers on the top was a great idea...Thank you for sharing this!
