Recipe by Cookinmomof3

This is such a great weeknight dinner and it tastes amazing!!! The mixture of chicken, fresh tomatoes, broccoli and italian dressing makes for a delicious dinner the whole family will love. You of course can make it with any vegetable on hand-I've even made it without the cheddar cheese and the taste is still great!!

I thought it was pretty tasty. My 3 year old loved it. I only used 1 cup of dry rice and 1 3/4 cups broth. I simmered for 20 minutes after it started boiling. I did not add tomatoes since I didn't have any on hand. I will be more careful with how much salt I use next time.
