  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion diced
  • 2 1/2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese grated
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked rotisserie chicken shredded
  • 2 cups leftover cooked brown rice


  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté onion and broccoli until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle flour over veggies and stir to incorporate. Slowly whisk in milk and continue stirring to scrape up the brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.
  • Simmer slowly to thicken sauce, then season with salt, pepper and ground mustard. Melt cheese into sauce, then stir in cooked rice. Heat through 2-3 minutes, then serve.
