One Pan Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice

Thanksgiving is just around the corner! We always host single soldiers and sometimes a few extra families. Prepping and shopping all the food for one day, I AM EXHAUSTED!! Well, CHINET hooked me up twice this year! Not only did I save on disposable items for Thanksgiving but they also provided us with this amazing, simple recipe that takes the stress and thinking out of dinner for a night. We are planning this for the day after Thanksgiving, but it is such a good recipe to keep in hand for before also! Stress free, delicious, and easy clean up with CHINET plates! I couldn’t ask for more… well besides a personal chef 😉 Check this out!!


what you need:

  • 3 Tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 c uncooked extra-long grain brown rice
  • 2 1/2 c broccoli florets, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 1/2 c of low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 c shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese

what to do:

  1. In a large skillet or pan, SAUTE onions in two tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Once onions soften, INCREASE the heat to medium high and add chicken to the pan.
  3. BROWN the chicken pieces. Add garlic and cook for another minute.
  4. PUSH chicken to one side of the pan and add a tablespoon of olive oil to the other side.

  7. COOK chicken and rice mixture covered for 12 minutes.
  8. SPRINKLE the broccoli evenly over the chicken and rice mixture and stir to combine.
  9. CONTINUE to cook covered another 8 minutes on low, or until broccoli and rice are both tender.
