Broccoli Rice Skillet with Chicken, Artichokes & Roasted Peppers

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of cauliflower rice, but did you know there is something called broccoli rice too? Earth Fare carries it in their frozen department! I love these low carb options and the fact that I’m eating more vegetables is a plus!

This meal is similar to a traditional chicken and rice meal, but substitutes broccoli rice. It comes together quick in one skillet, which makes it great for a busy weeknight. Most of the ingredients have a long shelf life, so you could have these right on your shelf or in your freezer already! Pick up a rotisserie chicken and you’ve got yourself a meal.

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 onion, diced
3 tbls butter
1 12oz frozen bag of Earth Fare Broccoli Rice
¼ cup chicken broth
2 cups cooked shredded chicken
1 14 oz can quartered artichoke hearts
1 12 oz jar roasted bell pepper strips
1-2 cups shredded mozzarella, depending on preference
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
1) In a large skillet, melt butter and stir in diced onion. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes.
2) Stir in broccoli rice, and add chicken broth. Bring to a boil, simmer and cook for 5 minutes covered.
3) Rinse and drain your artichokes and roasted peppers, and stir into the pan along with the cooked chicken. Top with shredded mozzarella and cover for an additional 5 minutes. When heated through, stir in salt and pepper to taste and serve.
