 Broccoli Cheddar Soup with Chicken and Rice goes from prep to plate in under half an hour, a one pot simple recipe.  Loaded with delicious ooey gooey cheese, nutty jasmine rice, chicken and did I mention cheese?  Oh, broccoli too.  I almost forgot about the broccoli with all the cheeeeeese in there!

Broccoli-cheese soup takes me back to my childhood. The thought of broccoli florets covered in a thick, rich, cheesy soup still brings a smile to my face.

Honestly, that soup was the only way I would ever voluntarily eat broccoli as a kid.

Looking back I am sure it was the ‘bowl of cheese’ that lured me in, but as an adult, broccoli is my favorite vegetable and cheese is of course still my favorite food. They are a match made in heaven!

The night I developed this dish I realized I had just bought frozen broccoli florets and cheddar cheese and needed a delicious dinner that would be ready in a snap.

I knew right away this was going to turn into the most delicious creation. This incredible one pot soup is packed with chicken, nutty jasmine rice, broccoli and cheese.

Can’t you just smell it? It is so delicious; thick, rich and flavorful. I couldn’t stop eating it. I eventually put the left over bowl in the freezer. It will make a scrumptious lunch!

This Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Soup packed with chicken and rice goes from prep to plate in 30 minutes and has enough ‘inactive’ cook time to clean your kitchen and call your best friend.

That is what I call a perfect meal! Thick, rich, and delicious are 3 perfectly fantastic reasons to make this soup.  Need more?  How about a scrumptious one pot meal with only 10 minutes of active cook time?

That's what I am talking about.  Trust me, you want this for dinner.  Tonight!
