Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Rice

So my pantry is getting thin, and money tight. Looking at what I had, this is what was whipped up tonight:

Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Rice

2 c water
1 1/2 c instant brown rice
8oz frozen broccoli flowerettes
1 10oz can chicken (I used light and dark meat, you choose)
1 can condensed cheddar cheese soup
Salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme to taste
1/2 - 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
French fried onions

Bring water to a boil. Add rice, broccoli, chicken, soup, and seasonings. Resume a boil and turn down to a heavy simmer. Cover and cook, 5-10 minutes, until rice is tender. 

Stir in shredded cheese. Let stand, covered, another 10 minutes. Serve, topped with fried onions. 

Serves 2-3.
