Take A Meal Chicken and Broccoli



Oh my word. After such a fun-filled weekend in Charleston, we needed to step it down a notch in the kitchen. 

Do you have the recipe for the world’s easiest chicken and broccoli casserole? Here it is. I’m sure you can find a very similar one on the back of a soup can. 

This is super-easy. It’s a great one to take to family and friends who don’t have time to cook, but need a homemade dish. Cook halfway if taking to a friend and recommend cooking another 15-25 minutes at 350°F. 

I like this one because it’s not extremely bland, so all of us will eat it. Add some Sriracha if you are in need of some heat. Jazz it up with some garlic salt if you choose. I’m just glad my kids ate a well-rounded meal tonight! 

What You Will Need: 
1 can low sodium Cream of Chicken soup (see below for homemade recipe) 
1 lb thinly slicked boneless skinless chicken breast 
2 C broccoli florets 
1 C long grain rice 
1 C water 
cheese (optional) 
salt and pepper 

1) Preheat oven to 375°F. 
2) Stir soup and 1 can of water. Add rice. 
3) Mix in broccoli. 
4) Place chicken breasts on top of rice and broccoli. 
5) Bake for 45minutes to 1 hour, depending on thickness of chicken. 
6) Serve with bread. 

Cream of Chicken Soup 

Melt 2 T butter in medium saucepan. 
Add 2 T flour and whisk until smooth.
Stir in 1 C chicken broth. 
Bring to boil and simmer. Set aside.

I just made this meal this past Sunday I cubed up the chicken and mixed it righ in with the rice-my kids would have perfured I left it out like you did--THEY are real silly about eating casserole type meals-they like the seperation-but they gobbled it up and asked for more! =)

Thanks for the homemade version of the soup! I hate when a recipe insists I use condensed soup, if I'd rather avoid some of the ingredients in it! Kudos!

That looks really easy to make. Something I can make when I get home from work. We always eat rice, but I never thought of cooking it in broth. That will definitely make it tastier. My daughter loves broccoli, so this dish will be a sure hit.
