One Pan Lime Chicken & Broccoli Rice

Are you a fan of broccoli? It used to be one of those things that my mom had to drown in cheese sauce in order for me to eat it as a child. I absolutely did not like it. It’s funny how things you didn’t care for as a child you come to love as a adult. I love broccoli and I’m always adding it to meals. This Chicken Broccoli Rice has a hint of garlic and lime and is absolutely delicious, and so simple to make.

One Pot Lime Chicken & Broccoli Rice

One pot meals Like my Creamy Tortellini and Sausage, or my Pizza Pasta, are so easy to throw together, especially on busy weeknights. I love that they are quick and simple and that it leaves me with only one dish to clean!
