Pin a Day: Cheesy Chicken Bacon Broccoli and Rice


Today was a lazy Sunday, which gave me plenty of time to try a new dish for dinner.  Tonight, I made Cheesy Chicken Bacon Broccoli and Rice.  It was such a yummy dish, but it was a little time consuming.  First, I made the bacon, which I cooked in the microwave.  Next, I cooked the chicken.  Then, I cooked the onions and broccoli while the rice cooked. Next, I combined the vegetables, meats, rice, and 2 cans of Rotel.  The last step was to make the cheese sauce.  I've always had some difficulty with sauces due to my lack of patience and focus, but tonight the stars aligned and my sauce turned out fantastic.  The texture and taste were both perfect.  I added the sauce to the mixture and it was ready to serve.  There were so many great flavors that melded together well.  We both ate big portions and had plenty of leftovers.  This will be a meal I'll make again, likely on another day when I have plenty of time.
