Chicken Alfredo Rice (a.k.a. We're out of groceries!)

This little recipe came from a need for a quick easy dinner and not a lot of groceries in the house! We were pleasantly surprised with the results, though.

Chicken Alfredo Rice

2 cups uncooked brown rice
2 cups milk, divided
2 cloves garlic (more or less to taste)
1 tbsp butter
2 oz 1/3 fat cream cheese
1 tsp salt
1-2 chicken breasts, diced
2 tbsp flour
1 c. shredded parm. cheese
1  (28oz) can diced tomatoes

Cook brown rice in 4 cups water. 

In a separate pan saute garlic in butter add chicken and cook through. Add cream cheese and flour to make a roux of sorts. Add milk and stir till thicken. Add tomatoes (slightly drained). Cook until heated through. Serve over brown rice and dinner is on the table.

(If your rice is already cooked then it will only take a matter of minutes to pull it all together!)
