A great way to use up leftover roasted chicken, this satisfying rice skillet is pure comfort food. Shredded meat pulled from a store-bought rotisserie chicken is a real time saver.
1 tablespoon Cabot Salted Butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons sliced scallions, divided
2¼ cup mixed broccoli and cauliflower florets
2 cups cooked shredded cooked chicken (rotisserie works great)
1 cup uncooked white rice
2 cups organic chicken stock
½ cup Cabot Lowfat Plain Greek Yogurt
¾ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
5 ounces Cabot Pepper Jack Cheese, grated and divided (about 1¼ cups)
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!
This was wonderful. The yogurt made the rice come out tasting like risotto. The crispy top of two kinds of cheese was just what the family ordered. My family doesn't care for broccoli so I swapped out the broccoli and cauliflower with carrots, zucchini, and yellow squash. I threw in some green and red bell peppers for fun – and viola – a dish the family wants me to make again.
Thanks for the recipe Cabot family and here's to your chef!
