Directions

Heat the broiler to high and cook the rice according to package directions, then drain. In a skillet, heat the oil and swirl to coat. Add onion, mushrooms, and chicken. Season with 1/4 tsp. salt and pepper. Sauté until the chicken and onion are done, about 6 minutes.
Cook the broccoli in microwave according to package directions and open to release steam. In a bowl, whisk together milk and flour until smooth. Add the milk mixture into the chicken mixture in the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes, or until thick and bubbling. Stir frequently. Stir in the remaining salt, rice, and broccoli. Sprinkle with cheese, if using. Broil in the oven for 1 minute.
