Ingredients

1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 c. small yellow onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 c. white rice
2 1/2 c. low-sodium chicken broth, divided
1 c. heavy cream
2 c. broccoli florets
1 c. shredded cheddar
1/4 c. panko bread crumbs

Instructions

  1. In a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft, 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 6 minutes more.
  2. Stir in rice, heavy cream, and 1 cup of the broth. Bring to a simmer and cook until rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Add remaining 1 1/2 cups broth, broccoli, and cheddar cheese and cook until broccoli is tender and cheese is melty, about 10 minutes.
