  2. Spray nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add 1 to 2 tablespoons chicken broth to skillet and heat over medium-high heat.
  3. Add onions and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until onions are softened.
  4. Add mushrooms and bell pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender. Pour soy sauce over vegetables and mix well.
  5. Add vegetable mixture to rice and mix well.
  6. Spoon rice mixture into microwave-safe bowl; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
