Cheesy Chicken and Rice Skillet

If you haven't heard.... I don't cook.

I'm the worst "housewife" going and haven't exactly cooked gourmet meals for my lovely boyfriend. Poor guy ;)

Sometimes I do get in the mood to cook and this past Tuesday was one of those days! At work I kept thinking about how I wanted to make something yummy for dinner so I found a recipe online and after work headed to the grocery store to pick up what I needed and voila!

Here's the ingredients I used:

1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 chicken breast, cut into small pieces
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 package of Knorrs rice pilaf
2 1/4 cups chicken broth
1 can of cream of chicken soup (10.5 oz)
2 cups broccoli tops (chopped up very small)
1 cup cheddar cheese

Here's what I did:

1. Put olive oi, chopped onion, garlic, and chicken in a large skillet on medium heat. I cooked this for about five minutes until it seemed like the chicken was heating up nicely.

2. I added rice, cream of chicken soup, and chicken broth. I started with two cups of chicken broth but ended up adding about 1/4 a cup later on. I cooked this for about 15 minutes, adding the 1/4 chicken broth right before the 15 minutes were up.

3. I then added half the cheddar cheese and all the broccoli and let it cook for two minutes.

4. I sprinkled cheese over the top, turned off the burner, and let it sit for a few minutes before eating.

It was absolutely delicious! I was very pleased with myself and I thought it was a great dinner.

I adapted my version from which called for slightly different ingredients and instructions. I improvised with what we had in the apartment and I think it turned out pretty darn good!

Happy cooking and happy Friday everyone!
