Chicken and Broccoli Rice Junk

Chicken and Broccoli Rice Junk

Here's another cleaning out the fridge Rice Junk recipe.  Here I use some leftover rotisserie chicken and broccoli from a previous meal.  It's so easy to swap out whatever you may have in your fridge.  Enjoy!



1/2 medium onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

Olive oil

2 cups chopped broccoli flowerettes and stems (blanched)

2 1/2 cups chopped chicken

1 cup uncooked rice

2 1/4 cup chicken stock

1/3 cup parmesan cheese

salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Heat a dutch oven over medium-high heat.  Swirl the pan with olive oil to coat the bottom.  Saute the onion until almost translucent, add in the garlic and stir for 30 seconds.  Add in the rice and stir to coat in the oil for about 1 minute.  Add the chicken stock, chicken and broccoli and stir.  Cover and place in the oven for about 25 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed.  Remove the lid and stir in the cheese and season with salt and pepper.  This dish will serve 3-4 people as a main dish.
