Prep:

Cook:
1 Hr
Method:
Saute

Ingredients

2 clove
garlic, minced
1 small
onion, diced
2
ribs celery, chopped
1 lb
chicken breast, diced
1 c
rice
2 c
chicken broth
1 1/2 c
shredded cheese (cheddar, jack, colby, gouda, or any combination)

Step-By-Step

1Saute garlic, onion and celery in a small amount of oil (I use olive oil) until onions are soft and translucent, about 3 minutes.
2Add chicken and saute until cooked, about 10 minutes.
3Add rice and stir to combine well. Add broth, cover, and reduce heat to simmer for 15minutes.
4When rice is tender, add cheese a little at a time, stirring until well combined. If necessary, you can add a little more broth at this point to make it a little soupy. Cover and let simmer on very low heat, stirring occasionally, for another 15-20minutes.
