Simple Creamy Chicken with Broccoli and Rice

I worked later than normal tonight and was starving when I walked in the door. I had chicken defrosting in the fridge and a head of broccoli that needed to be used.  Hence, Simple Creamy Chicken with Broccoli and Rice.  I surprised myself with a quick, simple dish that was also very tasty, filling and not horrible for my detox (This is a very loose detox for the first month, read Get Your Greens for reference).
