Chicken, Rice and Broccoli dish! - A Recipe From Barnsey

Updated on March 9, 2012

With Cheese on Top!

When I lived alone I found it difficult to cook healthy and complete meals just for myself. Often times I found myself wasting my money on pizzeria food or worse, convenience store food. Yuck!

One day I discovered a way to cook three things, with cheese on top, all in one dish at one time. Not only did it make things easier for me it also allowed me to get a complete meal without all the effort.

Let's face it effort is the key word here. When you come home from work you do not want to spend even an hour in the kitchen cooking. You want to have cleaned up and everything else by the end of the hour so you can continue with your evening. Right? Right.

Here we go. First thing you do you place some nice chicken breasts in a shallow glass pan/dish and cook at 350 bake. You want to make sure it is a larger dish since you are going to be putting rice and broccoli in there also. I use italian dressing to flavor the chicken and it goes well with the rice.

Meanwhile I am cooking up some rice. Try a cup for yourself or two cups for a family sized meal. Before the rice is completely done you want to take it out of the pan and place it in the dish with the chicken which has cooked ideally for at least twenty minutes on its own.

The rice will finish cooking but absorbs the juices and dressing instead of plain water. Throw frozen broccoli on top of the whole thing and toss it back in the oven for another twenty minutes.

Now for the cheese. I personally will use american cheese for this simply because the italian dressing goes well with it. For kids I would try cheddar. Cheddar is a good brainwashing tool for kids or those who have poor taste and don't like to try new things. Throw or sprinkle, whatever you desire, the cheese on top of everything and place the dish back in the oven for ten more minutes and the dish will be done.

There you have it. Simple and easy, plenty of time between tasks to get other things done. Now, the important thing here is that the chicken will come out juicy and the rice will be flavored nicely and the cheese will have melted throughout the dish. Yummy!

Give it a shot and enjoy Barnsey's take on Chicken, rice and broccoli. You won't regret it!
