Cheesy Chicken and Rice with Broccoli
1 5oz Package Yellow/Saffron Rice
1 1/2c Thrive Chopped Chicken
2T Thrive Red & Green Bell Peppers
3c Hot Water
1c Thrive Broccoli Pieces
1-2t Curry Powder (optional)
1c Thrive Shredded Cheddar, rehydrated
Combine rice, chicken, peppers and water in saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in broccoli and curry powder and simmer for 5 more minutes or until rice is tender. Season as desired (I added salt and pepper), spoon into bowls and top with cheese.
Feel free to add more Thrive vegetables to this dish if you would like! Peas, mushrooms, green beans and corn would all be delicious additions. Just be sure to adjust more water as needed.
