Not a math whiz? This one's easy. 1 skillet + 5 ingredients + 25 minutes = a cheesy chicken, broccoli and rice dish. Now that's a tasty equation.

I love love love this recipe. It's super easy to make and the whole family loves it. I will also use left over roasted chicken so it's a great way to use the leftovers!
We were grilling out and I needed a quick side dish, and this worked out perfectly!! It needed a little extra "Umph" but nothing a little pepper, or whatever you prefer, wouldnt fix. Husband approved :)
Super fast, easy and tasty! I don't normally use Velveeta, but this recipe looked good so I decided to try it. I can't believe how easy it was to make! I had no issues with the rice cooking all the way...makes me wonder if those who had issues with it didn't use instant? Another thing that is great about this recipe is that it is very adaptable. I added extra broccoli, and really, you can use any kind of veggies you want...peas, carrots, mixed veggies, etc. I am going to try to adapt it to using long grain brown rice next time I make it, and I WILL be making it again!
It was excilent!!!! I left out the Broccoli but it was still really good!!! My family enjoy it.
I modified this quite a bit, but I did use this as my inspiration. I used regular brown rice, I boiled 1 cup of rice for 25 minutes in 2 cups of chicken broth. I diced the chicken, heated 1 TBS olive oil and browned the chicken with salt, pepper and 1/2 tsp garlic powder for about 5 minutes. I added the chicken to the cooked rice, along with the 1/2 lb of cubed velveeta (I also added 1/2 cup of milk but with how watery mine came out that wasn't necessary to get a creamy texture, I think since I only used half as much rice as the original recipe called for the 1/2 lb of cheese was enough to obtain a creamy texture by itself). I then steamed 4 cups of fresh broccoli and added that to the pot and combined gently. So I ended up with cheesy rice and broccoli but pretty different from the original recipe! :) It's very tasty the way I made it, a light flavor and I love the creamy cheesy flavor the velveeta gives it with the good crunch and hearty flavor of the brown rice.
Just made this last night. Left out the brocolli b/c my husband doesn't like brocolli. I did add some seasonings to it (garlic and seasoning salt). Otherwise, I made it just like the recipe said. It was yummy but some of the rice wasn't done. Next time I'll cook the rice in the chicken broth and mix after that.
Ok so, I thought this would be the perfect recipe for using up cheaper cuts of chicken I had in my freezer. So I took out boneless, skinless thighs, trimmed them up a little (they are a fatty part of the chicken). DON'T EVER DO THIS! The meal would have been really good had I not used the thighs. I followed others advice and cooked the rice in the chicken broth in a pot, threw the broccoli into the microwave until done then added it, added a few spices in the end it all come together nice and tasted good except the chicken I ended up picking it off of my kids plates then they ate the rest down and ask for more rice and broccoli. OH yeah I did add like 3/4c. milk to make it creamier. I will definatly make it again with chicken breast.
I added a can of 98% fat free cream of chicken soup and a few spices and this came out delicious and very quick! I think some of the comments about the rice not cooking may have been due to the rice/liquid ratio in the original recipe. Adding the soup makes all the difference, it came out creamy and yummy, even my picky 6 year old loved it!
Great easy one-dish recipe! The ingredients are ones that I typically have in the pantry which is an added bonus! I'll definitely make this one again!
I had bone-in chicken breast thawed so I just cooked it seperate in the oven. My 6 year old doesn't like her broccoli cooked so I substituted a bag of mixed veggies instead (green beans, peas, carrots, and corn. It was really easy and tasted great for a weeknight meal. The whole family ate it.
