Drain and rinse water chestnuts and add to mixture, along with the thawed peas (I cooked the peas separately and served them on the side, as my hubby isn't crazy about them) and continue to simmer until rice is tender, about 5 to 10 minutes more. Stir in canned onions and serve immediately with soy sauce. Will serve 4
