Cheddar-Broccoli Chicken

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by wife2abadge

From the recipe book A Man, A Can, A Plan. I served this over rice to rave reviews from my family, including the picky children. I couldn't find a 9-oz can of chedder cheese dip (the pic showed Fritos brand), so I used half a 16 oz jar of medium spiced Tostito brand cheese dip. I typed the recipe instructions as he had them in the cookbook, but I cooked my chicken for a bit longer than 5 minutes, and I added a bit of water to the pan with the vegetables so they didn't burn.

We really liked this recipe a lot. It's very easy to do and the flavor was great. I substituted the cheddar cheese dip for 2% velvetta because I had it in the house. I will be making this again
