When you have a busy family finding enough time to cook dinner can be problematic. Finding a dish that is quick, easy, budget friendly, and something everyone will eat can easily be overwhelming. So, give this family-friendly skillet dish a try. It’s got chicken, broccoli and rice in a creamy sauce, and it’s on the table in a snap. This could easily become a family favorite!

The recipe serves 4 and takes 5 minutes’ prep time and 20 minutes’ total to serve


1 ¼ Pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
(Note: recipe based on 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving)

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

1 Can Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or Condensed 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup
(you can substitute Cream of Mushroom Soup if desired)

1 ½ Cups water

¼ Teaspoon paprika

¼ Teaspoon ground black pepper

2 Cups uncooked instant white rice

2 Cups fresh or frozen broccoli florets


Step 1

Season the chicken as desired.  Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned on both sides.  Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Step 2

Stir the soup, water, paprika and black pepper in the skillet and heat to a boil.  Stir in the rice and broccoli.  Reduce the heat to low.  Return the chicken to the skillet.  Sprinkle the chicken with additional paprika.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  Season to taste.
