Recipe Steps

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using sirloin, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 2, and 3, baking uncovered in hot oven until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 15-20 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Carefully massage rice in bag to break up any clumps. Tear a small slit in an upper corner of bag to vent. Place upright in microwave and heat, 45 seconds. Remove rice from packaging. Place rice in one side of provided tray. Place chicken in other side of tray.

  2. 2

    Add the Topping

    Top chicken evenly with seasoning blend, dressing, and cheese.

  3. 3

    Bake the Dish

    Bake uncovered in hot oven until cheese is melted and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 20-25 minutes. If browning too quickly, tent dish with foil. Carefully remove tray from oven. Stir butter into rice until melted. Rest, 5 minutes. Top chicken with sour cream and garnish rice with crispy jalapeños (to taste). Bon appétit!
