  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 package of steamable broccoli florets
  • 1 small diced onion
  • 1/4 diced bell pepper
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Colby jack cheese, shredded
  • mozzarella and sharp cheese (for topping)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 bag of cooked rice
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt (for cheese sauce)
  • seasoned salt, to taste for veggies


Step 1

To start, boil your rice and steam your broccoli. In the meantime, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large pan over medium heat, then add the chopped chicken breast. Season with 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper, and 2 tsp cajun seasoning. Sear the chicken for three to five minutes. (Add a little water or broth if the pan gets too dry). After cooking, remove from pan and set aside. In the same pan, melt 1 tbsp butter, then add the diced onion and bell pepper. Saute until softened, then add 1/3 cup of chicken broth to deglaze the pan. Next, add the steamed broccoli and season with salt. Mix well, then remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 2

Reduce the heat to low, then add 1 pint of heavy cream to the same pan, 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese, and 1 cup of Colby jack cheese. Whisk to combine and season with 1/2 tsp ground black pepper and 1 tsp seasoned salt. Mix well and set it aside. Now, grease a 10″ cast iron skillet with some butter. Add the cooked rice, the cooked veggies, and the cooked chicken, then drizzle the cheese sauce all over. Mix everything to combine, then spread them nicely. Top it with some more shredded cheese and bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes. (Broil of desire to brown the top).
