  • 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add diced chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until chicken browns and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

  • 3

    Make the Sauce

    Add cream to pan and bring to a simmer. Cook until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Stir in cheese until incorporated. For best results, pierce brown rice bag a few times with a knife, then break up rice inside the bag. Add rice and stir to combine. Stir occasionally until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
