Gino's Tip

Try to get your chicken and broccoli onto a tray along with your rice halfway cooked then you can place your chicken, greens, and rice in at the same time for it to be done in unison.

Step 1 -Roasted Cajun Chicken and Greens - See Gino's Tip

Season your chicken breast with salt and pepper and rub with your cajun spice. Toss your broccoli in a large mixing bowl with a drizzling of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Heat a large casserole pan over med-high heat once your pan is hot but not smoking; add a drizzling of olive oil and sear your chicken breast on one side for 3-4 minutes until well browned. Place onto an oven tray along with your broccoli; pop into the oven for 15-18 minutes until your chicken is cooked through and your broccoli is tender and lightly browned.

Step 2 - Cheddar Rice

Heat a medium saucepan over med-high heat, add a drizzling of olive oil and fry your diced onion and chopped garlic for 2-3 minutes. Now add your jasmine rice and cook until your rice is slightly toasted. Proceed to stir through your cream cheese and water, and transfer to a baking dish preferably with a lid (or cover with foil) and pop into the oven 15-18 minutes until soft and cooked. Before serving mix through your grated white cheddar.

To serve

Divide your cheddar rice, roasted cajun chicken and greens amongst your servings. Enjoy!
