ONE POT CHEESY CHICKEN BROCCOLI & RICE

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into small, bite-sized pieces)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup uncooked basmati OR long-grain rice
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 bag (12 oz) frozen steamable broccoli (about 2 cups chopped broccoli)
  • 2 cups shredded Colby Jack cheese

Instructions

  1. In a 12-inch skillet pan (make sure it has a lid) heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add in the chunked, bite-sized chicken, and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Cook 4-6 minutes, stirring frequently, until chicken is mostly non-pink in the middle.
  2. Add rice and chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover with lid, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 12-15 minutes or until water is absorbed and rice is cooked.
  3. While rice and chicken is simmering, cook the microwaveable broccoli in the microwave following the instructions on package. Once done, chop up the broccoli into smaller pieces, if wanted.
  4. When rice is done cooking, add broccoli and 1 cup of the cheese into the skillet pan. Stir together. Top with the remaining 1 cup shredded cheese and cover with the lid. Let cook for about 2 more minutes or until cheese is melted.
  5. Serve immediately.
