About a week ago, while scouring our pantry for dinner ideas, I found an intriguing recipe for cheesy chicken Monterey on the back of a Knorr® Rice Sides packet.

We had all the ingredients, so I made the recipe and my whole family LOVED it!

Cheesy Chicken Monterey

Fast forward to last week when I received an opportunity to work with Knorr® Sides to share a recipe with all of you. Wouldn't you know it… same recipe! True story, folks.

I had regretted not photographing the dish the first time I made it, because I knew it would be a hit with my readers, so this was a wonderful opportunity for me to have a do-over.

No one in my home protested when I mentioned that we would be having this cheesy chicken monterey again! What I love most about this recipe is that it is flavorful but not too spicy for the kids to enjoy.

The Chicken Flavor Knorr® Rice Side is one of our favorites on its own, and the addition of the other ingredients really transform the rice into something specia.

This cheesy chicken Monterey recipe is seriously delicious. Now that we've made it twice, and each member of my family is thoroughly convinced that this recipe is a winner, it's going into our regular dinner rotation.
