Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Heat your oven to a cozy 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) to get started.
  2. In a saucepan of medium size, let the water bubble up to a rolling boil, then introduce the quick-cooking rice, give it a good stir, snap on the lid, and take it off the heat. Let this sit snugly for about 5 minutes.
  3. In a baking dish measuring 9×13 inches, combine the now-fluffed rice, chunks of cooked chicken, bits of broccoli, velvety processed cheese, creamy condensed mushroom soup, rich condensed chicken soup, a splash of milk, a dollop of butter, and a sprinkle of chopped onion. Mix these together to create a harmonious blend.
  4. Slide the dish into your warmed oven and let it bake until you see the cheese has transformed into a gooey delight, which should take somewhere between 30 to 35 minutes. Remember to give it a gentle stir when you’re halfway through the bake time to encourage the cheese to melt into every nook and cranny.

Notes

  • – For a healthier version, consider using low-fat or reduced-sodium versions of the canned soups and cheese sauce.
    – Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Can I use fresh broccoli instead of frozen?

Can I make this casserole ahead of time?

Yes, you can assemble the casserole, cover it, and refrigerate for up to 24 hours before baking. Add an extra 5-10 minutes to the baking time if starting from cold.
