Cheesy Chicken and Brown Rice

I got this recipe from the Kraft Food and Family website but wanted to try it out before posting. I changed a couple things and this is what we ended up with. Matt and I both really liked it and the leftovers are perfect to take to work for lunch.

1/2 cup Zesty Italian dressing
4 chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 cups brown rice, cooked
3/4 cups chicken broth
2 cups small broccoli florets
1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
1 cup shredded fiesta blend cheese

Heat dressing on medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook for 3 minutes. Add broth, cooked rice, and broccoli. Bring to boil, then cover and continue to simmer until chicken is cooked through and liquid has mostly gone, around 7-10 minutes. Add tomatoes and cheese; stir until blended.

I love the Kraft Food website. You can subscribe to get periodic emails with recipes and to get a quarterly "cookbook" mailed to you. Not that this applies to me, but, it is great for families with small children (my girlfriend amy...a contributor here, turned me onto it)

I totally get the quarterly cookbook,too. Their year-end one was great with lots of entertaining ideas. Not that we get to entertain much with our small apartment, but I hope to someday!
