Creamy Chicken, Mushroom and Spinach Rice Skillet

Another use-up-all-the-pantry/freezer-items recipe success!
dinner is one dish tonight, y'all.
Also, this one was made up as I went so measurements are estimations. 

What You'll Need
(serves 2)
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1 boneless skinless chicken breast, cubed
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 cup sliced button mushrooms
1 cup rice 
2 cups chicken broth 
2 cups fresh spinach
4 oz cream cheese, cubed

What To Do:
Heat olive oil over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to pan along with the onions. Cook 5 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked and onions are translucent. 

Add mushrooms and cook another minute. Pour in rice and stir for 2 minutes or until rice is toasted. Slowly add 1 cup of the chicken broth and stir, scraping up drippings from the bottom of the pan. Simmer covered for 15 minutes, stirring and adding more broth as necessary, until rice is fully cooked. Add cream cheese and spinach, stirring as the cream cheese melts. Scoop in a bowl and serve!
