Skillet Cheesy Chicken and Veggie "Rice" made with riced broccoli and cauliflower, sauteed chicken and cheddar cheese. It's so fast and easy to make!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb boneless (skinless chicken breast, cubed small)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 12 ounces riced cauliflower and broccoli (I used Green Giant Riced Cauliflower Broccoli)
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar

Instructions

  • Season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, garlic powder and black pepper, to taste.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat. When hot add 1/2 teaspoon oil and add half of the chicken.
  • Cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until no longer pink in the center and browned on the edges. Set aside.
  • Repeat with remaining chicken.
  • Add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of oil, onion and garlic and cook over medium heat about 2 minutes, until soft. Add the riced vegetables (frozen), 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook 5 to 6 minutes, until heated through.
  • Return the chicken to the skillet, top with the cheese and cover.
  • Cook low heat until the cheese is melted, about 2 to 3 minutes.
