Velveeta Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Rice
1lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 can (14 1/2 oz) chicken broth
2 cups instant white rice, uncooked
1/2 lb (8oz) Velveeta Pasteurized Cheese Product cut into cubes
1 pkg (10 oz) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
Cook and stir chicken in a large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat for 5 mins or until done. Stir in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add rice, Velveeta, and broccoli. Then cover and remove from heat. Let it stand for approx 10 mins. Stir until the cheese is completely melted and the mixture is well blended.
I coated my pan with some olive oil before cooking the chicken. To quick-thaw frozen broccoli... microwave for about half the cooking time specified on the package. I also added a little bit of salt and pepper when I plated my portion. I think a dash of pepper for this dish is a must! Ava loves the broccoli and ended up eating most of the broccoli bites on my plate. So next time I make this meal I will add a bit more broccoli florrets. Here are some photos to show you the process...
All of the ingredients in the pan post boil...
Rob is not a broccoli fan so I decided to split the meal in half and freeze some for a future meal. This is a great way not to waste food and a enjoy a home cooked meal on a busy night when there is no time to cook. Or in our case, have favorite bites on hand for this upcoming hunting season when it's just Ava and I!

Looks like Cafe' Kolkman scores another favorite dish... Yum-O-La!
We hope you will enjoy this skillet as much as we do!
