One Pan Cheesy Chicken Rice and Broccoli

Winner, winner One Pan Cheesy Chicken Rice and Broccoli dinner! I bet even those picky eaters that turn their nose up to broccoli will love this dish. Easy to make with only 9 ingredients and a prep time of 10 minutes you’ll be making this during the weekday especially when school starts. (My granddaughters start school in 2 days) Serves 4 Total Time: 1 hour


2 tablespoons olive oil
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice
2 1/2 cups chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1 cup chopped red bell pepper (1 large)
2 1/2 cups broccoli florets, cut into bite-size pieces
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, salt and pepper in oil 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Add rice and chicken broth; heat to boiling. Cook over medium-high heat 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until most of the liquid is absorbed. Add bell pepper, broccoli and 1 cup of the cheese. Cover; reduce heat to medium-low; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from heat. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. Cover; let stand 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Easy Peasy!
