Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice Bake
Cooking Time45 Minutes
2 medium chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, cut in 1" chunks
4 cups broccoli florets and stems, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 cups white Reveille Rice
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 cups cheddar cheese, reduced fat, grated and divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment.
Toss chicken and broccoli with olive oil in a mixing bowl until lightly coated on all sides. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and arrange on a lined baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for about 20 minutes, until the broccoli and chicken are cooked.
Cook rice accordingly. Add hot rice to a mixing bowl and stir together with black pepper, cheese, garlic, and milk; stir until the cheese and milk are evenly incorporated in the rice.
Pour the cheesy rice into a baking dish with the roasted chicken and broccoli and stir to incorporate. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until bubbly and the top is golden brown.
