Barbecue Chicken Rice Skillet
I knew that my kids would never go for a traditional barbecue chicken pizza. No way, no how, not happening. So, I got all tricksy and turned pizza into a skillet dinner using rice. I'm so smart sometimes.
Servings 3 servings
- 2 cups diced cooked chicken
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup rice
- 1/3 cup barbecue sauce divided
- 1/2 cup grated cheddar
- 2 tablespoons diced red onion
- 2 tablespoons diced cilantro
Heat large skillet over medium heat.
Add chicken, broth, rice, and 1/4 cup barbecue sauce to skillet. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook on low for 20 minutes or liquid has been absorbed and rice is cooked through.
Remove lid from pan and stir in cheese.
Drizzle remaining barbecue sauce over the top and sprinkle on onion and cilantro. Serve immediately.
