Expert Tips

  • Instant rice is a parboiled style of rice which yields the best results for an oven casserole.
  • Fresh pineapple can be substituted for canned pineapple in this recipe. Use 1 cup of pineapple, and increase broth to 1 3/4 cups.
  • The size of the boneless chicken breast (about 140 g each) in this recipe is critical for accurate cooking times and doneness. Always measure the internal temperature (165°F) to ensure chicken is completely cooked without sacrificing moisture.
