Cheesy Chicken Broccoli


In some ways it is easier to cook when Mikey is not home. I only need to worry about pleasing my own palate. (Not the easiest thing in the world to do either.)
The hardest part is modifying all the recipes to make a meal for just one or two and not have tons of leftovers growing in the fridge.
The other night while I was drifting off to sleep I was thinking something cheesy with broccoli and chicken. So I looked around and modified some recipes and came up with my own small portion recipe.
I have to say it turned out great. Next time though, for my own personal preference, I will precook the broccoli. I like soggy veggies, not crunchy unless I am eating them cold. I live by Mark Lowry's joke: cook the vegetables and take a vitamin. You guessed it...I"m not a nutritionist.
The recipe is supposed to be for two. Depending on your appetite it may only serve one or for me, three servings. I think it would be very difficult to cut it down smaller than what I have.
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
4 ounces processed cheese, cut into chunks (yes it's processed but it's GOOD)
1/2 can cream of chicken soup (freeze the other half can in a small freezer container for some other use)
1/4 cup milk
1-2 cups chopped broccoli (I used one small crown but you could use frozen)
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
Print Recipe


Spray pan with cooking spray and fry chicken on medium 4-5 minutes until cooked through. You can salt and pepper chicken to taste at this stage.

Toss everything else except rice into the pan with chicken. Reduce heat to low and simmer until all cheese is melted.


Serve over rice. (I think next time I will mix it all together.)
