Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite-size pieces
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups quick cooking brown rice look for one that cooks in 10 minutes, I used Minute brown rice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 14.5 ounce can 1 ¾ cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 pound broccoli florets cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¾ cup low fat milk
  • ¼ cup plain low fat Greek yogurt*
  • 1 cup 4 ounces grated cheddar cheese, divided

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a large (5 quart) skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is slightly browned, 3-4 minutes. Chicken does not need to be cooked all the way through, as it will continue to cook with the rice.
  • Add the rice, garlic powder, chicken broth, ¼ teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper to the skillet. Stir. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook for 2 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook for 3 minutes more.
  • Remove lid and reduce heat to low. Stir in the flour, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the Dijon and milk. Cook, stirring, for 3-5 minutes until liquid is absorbed and broccoli is crisp-tender.
  • Stir in the Greek yogurt and ½ cup of the cheese. Top with remaining cheese and serve.

Notes

*Greek yogurt is optional. It adds a little extra creaminess to the dish but feel free to leave it out.
