Baked Rice and Peas

Easy peas-y and only 5 ingredients! Why bake rice? There is something nice about being able to put something in the oven, setting the timer and forgetting about it. While the rice bakes you can throw some chicken or shrimp in the air fryer, skillet or grill.

The ingredients in this oven baked rice are simple, rice and green peas with chicken stock or broth. You get fluffy, tender grains that have just the right texture once baked.

Variations and Notes

  • You can use canned peas or frozen peas, or even swap the peas for frozen mixed vegetables or corn if you wish.
  • I tested this with white rice, brown rice will not work here as the ratio and time will be off.
  • If you don’t have broth, you can use water and bouillon.
