I had a hankering last night for something very specific: chicken, broccoli, cheese and rice. I used my trusty Whole Foods recipe-finding app and typed in those ingredients but nothing came up. So I removed the cheese ingredient and, lo and behold, a recipe was found. But it didn't sound all that appealing. And the reviews of it weren't all that stellar, either. My craving wasn't going away so I modified it. And then I typed it up for your enjoyment. I'm nice like that.
Cheesy Chicken & Rice with Broccoli (serves 4... unless you are us, serves 2):
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 2 and 3/4 cups broth (I used low-sodium chicken broth)
- 1 cup brown rice
- 1 chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 medium-sized yellow onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 cups broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 1 cup cheese (I used sharp cheddar)
- 1 tbs lemon juice (totally optional)
- Salt & pepper to taste
Such a delicious dish. And so easy! I served ours with a spinach salad with sliced carrots and this delicious no-guilt caesar dressing. We both went back for seconds, hence the reason the main course only served the two of us. Funny how that works.
Your meal sounds great, plus looks really tasty. When we visit you in April, I would love to cook a meal for you and Lee. xoxo Grandma JulieReplyDelete
