One-Pan Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice


This One-Pan Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice dish is perfect for a busy weeknight when things are hectic. Only one dish to clean for this satisfying and easy dinner.

Broccoli is one of the few vegetables my whole family loves so I knew it would be a hit and it was. This is the kind of recipe that sits in your back pocket when it’s 5 pm and you don’t know what you’re making for dinner.

Ingredients:


  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion , diced finely
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts , cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 cloves of garlic , minced
  • 1 teaspoon of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 cup uncooked extra long grain white rice
  • 2 1/2 cups of low-sodium chicken broth (I like to use Better than Buillion Chicken base)
  • 2 1/2 cups broccoli florets , cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 cups shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese

Instructions:
