Grandma's Chicken Rice Casserole

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

I can remember my grandmother making this since I was little. It is great and uses ingredients that we almost always have on hand.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup rice (cooked in 2 cups salted water, according to directions)
  • 14 cup dried chopped onion
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of celery soup
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar Cheez Whiz
  • 1 (12 ounce) package frozen broccoli, cooked
  • 2 cups canned chicken


  1. Mix all ingredients and place in 9 x 13 pan.
  2. Cook at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  3. This is a great use for leftover rice.
  4. Optional: Sprinkle a little Mrs. Dash on the top for added flavor.
  5. Try different veggies, or add things like mushrooms, etc. for a different twist.

Very Yummy and easy :) I used left over grilled chicken breast and jasmine rice. I also used peas as I don't care for cooked broccoli, came together nice and easy. I also added some garlic and onion powder and ground pepper :)

Simple and very good chicken and rice casserole. I used two pouches of Tyson chicken and we always add skim milk to a similar recipe that we make in the microwave so I added it here too. Also added some celery seed and lemon pepper than placed in the oven. A very versatile recipe that can be made to your families liking. Thank you hon for another great recipe!
