    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add broccoli and onion; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in garlic; cook 30 to 60 seconds or until garlic is fragrant.
  • 3
    Stir in chicken broth, mustard, cream cheese spread, salt and pepper. Cook and stir 3 to 5 minutes or until mixture is smooth. Stir in chicken and rice; transfer to baking dish.
