Cheesy Grilled Chicken Rice Delight

Cheesy Grilled Chicken Rice Delight


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups long-grain white rice (cooked according to package instructions)
  • 1 cup queso (store-bought, from Ingles or your preferred brand)


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper to taste.
    • Grill the chicken until fully cooked, ensuring a nice char on both sides. This can be done on an outdoor grill or a stovetop grill pan. Cooking time may vary, but it’s generally around 6-8 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the chicken.
  2. Cook the Rice:
    • While the chicken is grilling, cook the rice according to the package instructions. Fluff the rice with a fork once cooked and set it aside.
  3. Assemble the Dish:
    • Place a generous portion of cooked rice on each plate.
    • Lay a grilled chicken breast on top of the rice.
  4. Add the Queso:
    • Warm the queso in a saucepan or the microwave according to the package instructions.
    • Pour the queso generously over the grilled chicken and rice, ensuring it cascades down the sides.
  5. Garnish (Optional):
    • Add optional garnishes like chopped fresh cilantro, diced tomatoes, or sliced green onions for a burst of color and flavor.
  6. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Serve immediately while the chicken is hot and the queso is gooey. The creamy, cheesy goodness will meld with the grilled chicken and rice, creating a delightful and comforting meal.
  7. Pairing Suggestion:
    • Consider serving this dish with a side of guacamole, salsa, or a simple green salad to balance the richness of the cheesy chicken and rice.

This Cheesy Grilled Chicken Rice Delight is a quick and delicious meal that brings together the smokiness of grilled chicken, the fluffiness of perfectly cooked rice, and the creamy goodness of queso. Enjoy your delightful creation from ingredients sourced at Ingles
