Saucy Chicken and Broccoli

 This is one of those dinners that one night, I had no clue what to make, I had some ingredients and decided to throw them together and see how it turns out.
Turns out this is now one of our favorite dinners. 
What you will need:
3 chicken breasts
broccoli- about 2 1/2 cups, I never measure how much, just do how much you want
white sauce- about a cup and a half
2 cups brown or white rice
Nature's Seasoning
1 tablespoon canola oil (or vegetable oil)
Velveeta cheese (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
This is the white sauce I use and I love it.
I am finding out that lot's of people don't know what Nature's seasoning is and it makes me sad because it is the best thing ever. You can use it on pretty much any meat and it makes it fabulous.
I also love Lawry's Seasoned Salt, it is super yummy on chicken with a little pepper, try them, you won't regret it!
 Start by cubing chicken and put in hot pan with oil, sprinkle generously with Nature's seasoning, cook till lightly browned.
 Cook broccoli with about a tablespoon of salt
Make white sauce according to directions
Cook rice. 
 My mom introduced me to all natural brown rice packets from Costco that are microwaveable and the perfect amount for the three of us per packet. I haven't seen them for a while and I'm on the lookout for them to come out again so if you see them, grab a box, they are awesome.
 Put a dollop of rice on plate.
 On top of rice add your chicken and broccoli.
So that the white sauce stays warm, wait to pour over top till you are ready to sit down to eat. 
I had some Velveeta cheese in my fridge and decided to melt some into the white sauce for Jon because he loves cheesy things. It turned out really good and will probably do it to the entire pan of white sauce next time.
 Warning, it makes a lot of food, none of us finished our plates.
 Till next time.
