My family loves casseroles and really, what's not to love? You can put together a hearty meal, that includes veggies, carbs and meats, in minutes that feeds an entire family. And most importantly, they taste great! This recipe is loved by my family. I hope you enjoy making and eating it. I forgot to take a picture of the ingredients and even forgot to take a picture with it all together. I did, however, take one after we had served ourselves dinner.
Chicken Broccoli Casserole
1 large box of Rice-a-Roni, chicken flavor
16 oz. frozen broccoli florets
3 chicken breast
1 can cream of chicken soup (I use low-fat version)
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup cheddar cheese
Prepare Rice-a-Roni according to package directions. Boil chicken. Save 1 cup of the broth. Cook broccoli florets slightly. Chop chicken in to bite-sized pieces. Mix soup, mayonnaise and broth thoroughly. Layer rice, broccoli and chicken in a sprayed 9 x 13 inch casserole dish. Pour sauce over the rice mixture. Cover with 1 cup of cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees until bubbling, about 20-25 minutes. Serve with fruit and bread and you have a delicious meal. For vegetarians: replace chicken broth with veggie broth and omit chicken.
