Brown Rice, Broccoli and Chicken Bake

My family doesn't generally love brown rice.  They really enjoyed it in this dish though.  I started out to do a skillet dinner, but I took a little time to put it all in a pan and melt the cheese in the oven.  Next time I'm going to try just mixing it in and letting it melt in the skillet rather than sprinkling it on top. This was a tasty dinner and full of healthy ingredients.   My family requested it again!

Brown Rice and Broccoli with Chicken

1 1/2 C. brown rice
3 1/4 C.chicken broth or water with 3 tsp. chicken boullion 

Place in medium pan, bring to a boil and cook for 40 minutes.  Remove from heat.

While the rice is cooking, saute the following in 1 T. of olive oil:

2 chicken breast, diced
1 C. onion, diced
1 C. mushrooms, sliced
2 C. broccoli florets (fresh or frozen is fine)

When the rice is done, place it on the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan .  Spread chicken and vegetables over rice.  Drizzle a couple of tablespoons of water or chicken broth over the whole pan.

Sprinkle 2 C. shredded mozzarella over the rice and veggie mixture and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Serve hot!
