Chicken & Rice Casserole

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Catnip46

I got this off a jar of Heinz Gravy. I wasn't too sure about making this at first as I always used creamed soups for a recipe like this but decided to give it a shot. Glad I did. It was really good and even better the next day. I used some left over frozen turkey I had and a jar of turkey gravy instead of what is called for. I also chopped the broccoli into smaller pieces after it was cooked as I don't like large pieces of broccoli. This is one of those "what can I have for supper tonight". A real comfort food.

This was such a breeze to make! I love simple recipes that taste good too! I used brown rice instead of white rice, but otherwise made as directed. And I loved the idea of using the gravy instead of a cream of chicken soup. Good solid easy weeknight type of meal. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag.
