Say Cheese!

20 Mar

Ok internet, first off, apologies. I have been horrendous about posting in March, I know. Here in Ireland, they do this weirdass thing where classes end at the end of March and then you have a month off before exams. It’s pretty great in that I’m going to be traveling for almost all of April (have I mentioned my Spain trip? yes?), but it’s pretty sucky in that all of our end of term papers are due…now. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’ve not really been doing all that much work since I’ve been here. I’m normally really very studious but ehh, I’m on a study abroad! These classes don’t do much for me, so I’m soaking up the Irish culture. The thing with that is I know have all my term papers to write for next week and one of my early finals to study for. That being said, my brother has also been visiting me so we’ve been doing a lot of eating out, absolutely no cooking, and an absurd amount of drinking. That being said, he left today, so I cooked dinner with another friend I have visiting, and I’m really just ignoring the fact that I have a paper to write. 

Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice 

This isn’t so much of a put together dish as it is lots of different foods thrown into a bowl together. Either way, it tastes yummy.

Ingredients: (serves 2 people with some left over)

1 head of broccoli

Some grated cheese

1 fillet of chicken*

2 cups of rice

* We had the chicken left over from when we cooked 5 chicken fillets the other day (my brother eats a lot of chicken…) and we cut them up into pieces and put them into sandwich baggies and refrigerated them. I used a baggie of chicken in this because it was all we had left but feel free to use no chicken or more chicken or whatever floats your boat.


1. Cook the rice.

Pro tip 1: I don’t actually know how to properly cook rice so you’re best off following the instructions on the bag, they probably know best. 

2. Cook the broccoli.

Pro tip 2: We cut up the big head of broccoli into mini heads, threw them in a bowl with some water and microwaved it. After 2 minutes it was still pretty tough so maybe give it 2 minutes, have a feel, and then another 2.

3. Reheat the chicken in the microwave for like, 30 seconds.

4. Take the rice off the heat, sieve out the water and pour into bowls.

5. Add in your chicken and broccoli, and sprinkle grated cheese on top to finish.

Pro tip 3: The cheese adds nice flavor, I suggest adding a lot as it melts into the rice with the heat. Yum yum yum.

So, I didn’t take a picture, but you can imagine what a bowl of rise with chicken, broccoli and cheese looks like. Instead, here is a picture of an Airedale Terrier puppy. Enjoy.
