1. Spray large pan with non-stick spray (Pam).  SAdd onion, garlic, and mushrooms and sauté for just a few minutes.

2.  Add broccoli, rice, soup mixes, and 2 cups of water/stock.  Add chicken .  Stir to combine and bring to low simmer.  Let cook over medium to low heat until the liquid is absorbed and rice tender (not long – 10 mins or so).  Add more water as necessary (if it starts to stick onto the pan before its done or before you are ready to serve).  Salt and pepper to taste.
