Equipment

  • Casserole dish

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken, diced
  • 1 1/2 cup white rice, uncooked
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, frozen
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cups shredded cheese
  • salt, pepper, spices to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F
  • On medium heat, brown the cut chicken in a large pot (you may use a tbsp of oil if desired and if you want to add any spices now is the time (I like adding taco seasoning here))
  • Once the chicken is browned, push it to the side of the pot using a spatula
  • In the grease of the chicken, toast the rice on the empty side of the pot for about a minute
  • Once the rice is toasted, pour in 2 cups of chicken broth and stir it in until well-combined with the chicken and rice
  • Now bring the pot to a simmer and cover and cook for 24 minutes
  • Prepare a casserole dish. and after the dish has been cooking for 24 minutes add it to the casserole dish, mix in the broccoli and remaining 1 cup of chicken broth
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes (topping it with cheese just 5 minutes before it's done)
  • Let sit and thicken for 10-20 minutes outside of the oven.
  • Enjoy!
