    1 lb. chicken breast, cubed
    1 c. brown rice, uncooked
    10-16 oz. frozen broccoli
    2 c. water
    1 t. salt
    1 T. butter
    Cheese sauce:
    2 1/2 c. milk
    4 T. flour
    4 T. butter
    1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese


In large pot, cook rice and chicken in water, salt and butter for 30 min. Then add the broccoli for the last 15 min.
While that is cooking, make the cheese sauce by melting the butter in a small pot. Add 2 c. of milk when melted. Mix the reserved 1/2 c. milk with the flour. When milk begins to simmer, add the milk/flour mixture and stir in until it thickens. Add cheddar cheese, stir until melted and smooth.
When the chicken/rice is done, pour the cheese sauce over it and mix well. Enjoy!
