Six ingredients and two steps is all you need to make this spicy dinner made with chicken, rice, Broccoli and cheese sauce with jalapeno peppers.

Ingredients

2
cups water
1/4
teaspoon salt
2
cups uncooked instant rice
3
cups Frozen Broccoli Cuts
1
(8-oz.) jar pasteurized process cheese sauce with jalapeño peppers
8
oz. cooked chicken breast (from deli), cut into 1/2- inch cubes (1 1/2 cups)

Directions

  • 1 In large saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. Add rice and broccoli; return to a boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes.
  • 2 Stir in cheese sauce and chicken; cook over low heat for 2 to 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally.
Tips  

For a less spicy version of this dish, substitute regular-flavor pasteurized process cheese sauce for the jalapeño flavor.

The regular-flavor cheese sauce is also available in a light version, which saves about 5 grams of fat per serving.

Round out the meal with mixed melon salad from the deli.
