Easy chicken broccoli skillet recipe with rice - ready in less than 20 minutes!

One pot meals are a big hit at our house.  The flavors get a chance to develop as they are slowly added and the recipe is easy enough for beginning cooks. Win – win in my book!

But sometimes, I don’t have the time or don’t feel like spending a lot of time cooking to develop those flavors. That is when semi home cooked meals come into play.

I use fresh ingredients in addition to meal starters to make a great tasting dish in just minutes. In this case it is a Campbell Oven Sauce mixture that is flavored with my own ingredients to give my family a real comfort food experience.

Broccoli is one of the favorite veggies in our house. I love using it in broccoli salads, main courses and soups. For today’s recipe, I’m making a delicious skillet recipe that features broccoli to add my freshness component.

Frozen mixed vegetables also adds some extra color to the dish.

The skillet sauce is already full of flavor but I’m also adding in some fresh cheddar cheese and some optional white wine.  

Doing this takes very extra cooking time and makes the dish extra creamy and flavorful.Wine and cheese with thyme

To make the recipe, you will need just 7 ingredients:

  • uncooked chicken thighs
  • Campbell skillet sauces – creamy Parmesan chicken flavor
  • fresh broccoli florets
  • frozen mixed vegetables
  • uncooked instant white rice
  • Cheddar cheese
  • white wine (optional)

The recipe could not be easier to make.  Just cook the chicken thigh pieces until lightly browned, add the broccoli and then the remainder of the ingredients and stir in the cheese just before serving.

Cooking everything in one pot makes clean up a breeze!
