Chicken Broccoli and Rice Dinner Made Easy

With some activity going on every evening during the week this month, dinner is not something I have been focusing on nor have been wanting to make.  I’m always on the look-out for quick and easy meals and Minute® Rice has become a staple in my cupboard for those meals.  One of my family’s favorite Minute® Rice dinners is Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice.

Only 5 ingredients and 1 pan this recipe can’t get any easier.  Substitute some of the cooking time and effort with pre-cooked chicken and you’ve made a super simple and really quick meal.

Minute Rice Dinner


  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 can chicken broth (14.5 oz)
  • 2 cups Minute® Rice (uncooked)
  • 1/2 lb (8 oz) of prepared cheese product cut into 1/2 inch cubes (we use Velveeta®)
  • 1 package (10 oz) of frozen broccoli chopped and thawed

1)  Cook chicken in a large non-stick skillet on medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until chicken is done.
2)  Add broth and bring to a boil.
3)  Add rice, cheese and broccoli.  Cover and remove from heat.  Let stand 10 min.
4)  Stir until cheese is completely melted and well blended.
5)  Enjoy!

I told you it was a super easy dinner!  It also has 4 of the 5 food groups in the USDA My Plate.  Serve with a side of fruit or serve fruit for desert and you’ve got a completely balanced meal your whole family will love.

Minute® Rice is so quick and easy to prepare and is great pantry staple. When meal time seems like a hassle, Minute® Rice is a go-to ingredient your whole family will love and allows you to have more quality time doing what your want with your loved ones.

Leftover rotisserie chicken or veggies from a meal earlier in the week? Minute® Rice can easily be paired with some of your leftover ingredients to make a quick, easy and wholesome meal your whole family will love in just a matter of minutes.
