Let's Make It
Heat oven to 400°F.
Spoon rice onto centers of 4 large sheets heavy-duty foil. Top each with a chicken breast.
Combine cream cheese spread, pesto, tomatoes and milk until blended. Add artichokes; spoon over chicken. Fold to make packet. Place in rimmed baking sheet.
Bake 30 min. or until chicken is done (165°F). Let stand 5 min. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening each packet. Sprinkle with Parmesan before serving.
To prevent rice from sticking to the foil, spray foil with cooking spray before using. Or, use nonstick foil.
If the chicken breasts in your market are larger than 1/4 lb. each, they will take longer to cook. Be sure to cook them long enough so that they are no longer pink in the centers and the juices run clear (165°F).
Substitute instant white rice for the cooked rice by simply combining 1-3/4 cups warm water and 2 cups instant rice; let stand 5 min. before placing on foil.
