Notes

Depending on how you want to serve this, you could shred the chicken up a bit and serve it all combined that way. Or leave the chicken breasts whole and then just spoon some of the creamy rice mixture on top.
For extra cheesiness, try adding some shredded cheddar cheese during the last 15 minutes of cooking. Put the lid back on and allow it to melt.
