Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Skillet Recipe

OMG! This Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Rice is seriously one of the best and easiest one skillet chicken dinners out there! So quick and so delicious! via Shawn {I Wash You Dry}


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken thighs*, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice
  • 2 cups uncooked broccoli, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/2 cups Colby Jack cheese, shredded


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and add to skillet along with the onion. Cook until chicken pieces are lightly browned and cooked through, and onion is tender, about 6 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic, uncooked rice, broccoli, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to the skillet. Stir in the chicken broth and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for about 17 minutes, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
  3. Stir in the sour cream and 1/2 cup of the cheese until mixture is creamy. Top with the remaining cheese and place lid back on top. Let cheese melt over low heat, about 2 minutes. Enjoy!
