  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 tsp paprika, divided

    Step 1

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cover. Cook for 4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through (165°F). Remove chicken from skillet and cover to keep warm.

    Step 2

  • Stir in water, soup, 1/4 teaspoon paprika and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil.

    Step 3

  • Add broccoli and rice and stir to combine. Top with chicken.

    Step 4

  • Sprinkle chicken with remaining paprika and pepper and cover. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes, or until rice is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed.
