Too Easy Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli and Rice Casserole

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

A delicious one dish meal that is full of flavor and will be cooked in less than 1 hour. The only prep time is for 2 cups of water to boil; and make sure the chicken is thawed if previously frozen. I got this recipe from my Brand Named Best Loved Casseroles book, in the "Dinner in Minutes" chapter.

this dish had a nice flavor to it, but it was rather dry. I will make it again, but next time, I will add a can of cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup to it as well.

I made this tonight for the first time, and couldn't believe how easy and delicious it was! I used a broccoli and chicken rice mix, as it was all I had, and cut the chicken into bite size pieces. I also used fresh broccoli and added some carrots, and served the dish with a side salad and roasted green beans and asparagus. A quick and very tasty meal. Thanks!
