My husband and I both loved this. I used cooked chicken strips and frozen broccoll (cooked it first) from Costco. Super easy and delicious. Will definitely make this on a regular basis.
I have to admit that, as a mother of 2 older kids, I'd never made this stand-by dish. Someone at work was talking about making this almost weekly, so I went on a 'zaar recipe hunt and made this one. I am highly impressed! I used instant brown rice and added about a teaspoon of dried minced onion to the broth/soup mixture. I did use frozen broccoli flowerets, but cooked them first. No problems and the dish was emptied! Thanks!
This dish was excellent and easy to make. I made some modifications... I used cream of onion soup instead, used 1/2 cup of grated parmesean in the over the rice and topped the dish with 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar/jack cheese. Yummy!
This casserole was ok, but I thought the flavor of the soup was very strong. I'm not against cream of anything soups, in fact I use them quite often, but I do prefer that the flavor not dominate the dish. I wasn't sure about using uncooked rice with all of the water at the top, but the rice did cook to a nice firm texture after about 25 minutes. I mixed the soup and broth together before adding to the dish because I thought it would be easier than trying to spread the soup over the broccoli.
Yes, outstanding! No, not gourmet, just really delicious. The instant rice provided a hearty texture [because it isn't as soft as traditional 20-minute] that worked very well with the chicken & broccoli. I tried to use frozen broccoli and that was a mistake because it was a bit crisp and chewy after 20 minutes baking despite thawing and draining the excess water. So, I would recommend using fresh, lightly boiled broccoli. I also sprinkled salt and pepper over the rice and then sprinkled a tiny it of parmasan cheese, italian seasoning and paprika on the top for color. Thanks!
This was delicious! My picky son liked it too! It will be making it into our monthly rotation of casseroles. Thanks for a yummy recipe! I updated this today, to give it 5 stars. We use this recipe at least one-two times a month. It has become an easy favorite, which I felt made it worthy of more stars! Thanks again.
