Dish Of Chicken And Rice

Disclosure: I was asked to participate in this campaign with Cabot Creamery as a member of the Healthy Aperture Blogger Network. I was compensated for my time.

Cheesy Chicken and Rice Skillet will definitely make it’s way into your weeknight rotation! It’s not easy finding meals that are healthy, easy to prepare and a hit with the whole family.

Skillet Of Chicken And Rice

However, this Cheesy Chicken and Rice Skillet fits the bill AND it’s a one-pan meal- my favorite! This dish packs several food groups into one pan- veggies, grains and protein!

I used Cabot Pepper Jack Cheese which is minimally processed with just milk, cheese making cultures and salt! It is mild enough for the kids, but also gives your dishes a little extra punch. Feel free to sub another cheese you like, such as Cabot Sharp Cheddar.

Cutting Board With Cheese, Garlic, Green Onions

The good news about Cabot Cheddars is that everyone can enjoy them. They’re naturally lactose-free and gluten-free, and offer a crowd-pleasing source of protein for any family meal. Cheese makes everything taste great!

Spoonful Of Chicken And Rice

Adding broccoli and cauliflower in this Cheesy Chicken and Rice Skillet bumps up the nutrient content while adding extra fiber.

Of course if you have a super picky kid, you can easily work around the broccoli and cauliflower. However it might just get them to eat their veggies when paired with some delicious melted cheese!
