I am a big fan of Perdue Frozen Chicken Breast but this recipe does not seem to work. Following the directions the chicken nor the rice get cooked in the time suggested.

I tried this recipe your way which was delicious! The next time, I added about 1/2 lb. medium shrimp along with 1/4 lb. of Beer Brats which I had pre-cooked and cut into coins. They were added about 10 minutes before serving. Sooo good!

I followed the recipe directions and wound up with raw, cold chicken and uncooked rice. Perhaps the directions are incorrect. I was quite disappointed. Otherwise, I love the product!

2.12.07 NOTE FROM WEBMASTER: We will look into the issue you encountered with our Bayou Chicken Bake recipe and let you know what our testers find,

2.13.07 NOTE FROM WEBMASTER: This recipe has performed sastisfactorily in our kitchens and also has been rated positively by others. We know that oven temperatures vary and for this reason we suggest a cooking time, and say to cook until chicken is done. It is always best to test for doneness with an internal meat thermometer reaching 170° F for breasts.

Delicious! Made it as a stovetop recipe instead of baking it. Added 1 lb. of shrimp 5 minutes before it was done. Then some crushed red pepper. Everyone loved it.
