If you don't have cooked chicken on hand, bone and chop a deli-roasted chicken. One chicken will yield about 3 cups chopped cooked chicken - freeze 1 cup for another use.
Sauté onion and carrots in a lightly greased Dutch oven over medium heat 5 minutes. Add 5 cups water, seasoning packet from rice, broccoli, and chicken. Bring to a boil, and stir in rice; reduce heat, cover, and cook 5 minutes. Add cheese and soup; cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Uncle Ben's Long Grain & Wild Rice Fast Cook Recipe.
This comes together quickly with tons of flavor. Creamy, without being too rich, and packed with veggies. Comfort food!
