  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 cups broccoli florets (about 1 large head)
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 5.5 ounces Knorr® Chicken Broccoli Rice Side Dish
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese shredded


  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the diced chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook until no longer visibly pink, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the broccoli, Knorr Chicken Broccoli Rice Side Dish, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat (so that bubbles are still visible, but the heat is low), and cook for 7 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and let sit for 2 minutes. Then remove the lid and stir in the cheese. The dish will still be plenty hot allowing it to melt easily.
  • Serve and enjoy!
