Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Melt butter in a large pot add chicken, seasoning with salt and pepper, and cook through. Add garlic and continue to cook for 30 more seconds.
Add 2 ½ cups of chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add rice and reduce heat. Cook for 5 minutes.
Add frozen broccoli and remaining 1 cup of broth. Cook on low and covered for an additional 5 minutes or until broccoli and rice is tender.
Mix in 1 cup of cheese and let sit off the heat and covered for 5 minutes.
Top with remaining cheese let it melt then serve.
Tips for making a good one-pot meal:
Tip 1:Make sure any meats used are cut small enough to cook through. For food safety purposes you want to make sure the meat is cooked before adding rice or noodles to a one-pot meal.Tip 2:Use Instant Rice. I only cooked mine for about 5 minutes, before the rice was almost ready. Instant rice is quicker for a meal like this.
