  • Stir in remaining Almond Breeze almondmilk, then gently stir in cheese. Cook over low heat just until cheese is melted, being careful not to overcook. Season with pepper.

Cook's Notes:

Feel free to use buttery spread in place of the butter and chicken stock instead of broth.

Save time by using thawed, frozen chopped broccoli.

Instant Pot(R) Method: Coat the bottom of the pot with butter. Place Breeze, stock or broth, seasonings, and rice in the pot, making sure the rice is completely covered with liquid. Top with chicken and onion. Lock lid and select Pressure Cook; set to 5 minutes. When cooking is done, let stand for 5 minutes then carefully open vent. Stir in broccoli; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Add cheese, stirring just until melted.

Slow Cooker Method: Coat the bottom of a slow cooker with butter. Place 3/4 cup Breeze, 3/4 cup stock or broth, seasonings, and rice in the cooker, making sure the rice is completely covered with liquid. Top with chicken and onion. Cover and cook on Low for 8 hours or on High for 4 hours. When cooking is done, stir in broccoli; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Add cheese, stirring just until melted.

Did not care for the thyme herb in the recipe will skip it next time but needs something to enhance it. I used arborio rice and cooked on stove top slowly adding the liquids. Read More

The only change I made to the basic recipe was to omit garlic as we don't care for it. I also made this in the crock pot as mentioned in the notes section. I found the recipe to be a bit bland and the crock pot method did not appear to use all of the liquids as stated in the ingredients. The rice also appeared to be overcooked through this method. I added LF sour cream the next day to give it some flavor. I love the idea of using the almond milk and will try using the skillet method next time to see if the outcome is different. Read More

I don't have Breeze so I used the milk I had on hand decreased it to one cup and made it in the pressure cooker. The batch I made in the crockpot didn't work out but I've now made four batches in the pressure cooker and it's turning out great! Instead of butter and spices I use kerrygold garlic and herb butter.
