I love many Rice A Roni food products. When I spotted a box of New Rice A Roni Cheesy Pleasers Parmesan Chicken Flavored Rice in the rice section of my local grocery store, I was delighted.

I discovered that New Rice A Roni Cheesy Pleasers Parmesan Chicken Flavored Rice is affordable. One box costs under two dollars. The price varies from store to store. I usually find many Rice A Roni food products to be high in quality and a good value for my money. I love Parmesan cheese and the chicken flavor added to this rice was a very different idea, in my opinion. I have a favorite homemade recipe for Parmesan chicken and I decided that this rice would be perfect to serve with it. I could not wait to try this dish!
The name Cheesy Pleasers is cute and since I am a cheese lover, this name made me really want to try this creative rice. I discovered that I can prepare this dish in the microwave or on the stove top. I also discovered that I can reduce fat and calories by using skim milk and reduced fat butter in this dish! I decided to cook this product on the stove top. In a large skillet, I mixed the rice, 2 cups of water, two tablespoons of margarine and brought all of that to a boil. I then covered, reduced heat to low and simmered for 20 minutes. Make sure that the rice is tender and almost all of the liquid is absorbed at this point. I then stirred in 2/3 cups of skim milk and the special seasoning. I increased the heat to high and boiled for 2 minutes, stirring. I covered and removed from heat. I let this rice stand covered for 3 minutes. I then stirred well and served.
Normally, I would have microwaved this dish but, since I was baking my Parmesan chicken, I had extra time to spare. This rice smelled fabulous. It is also very creamy! I ended up with a bit over 2 servings. When I tasted New Rice A Roni Cheesy Pleasers Parmesan Chicken Flavored Rice, I loved it! It was creamy, rich and very flavorful.

This rice has onion, garlic and parsley to help spice it up. It was very good! The chicken flavor added is wonderful. It is a great rice side dish to serve with chicken.
