How to Make Cheesy chicken broccoli rice

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.
