Chicken, Broccoli and Rice Casserole


It’s  been cold and rainy all day so I decided to turn on the oven and make something warm for dinner.  Here’s a simple recipe that you’ve probably got all of the ingredients for already.  You can also double it if you’ve got a bigger family to feed.

About 2 cups fresh or frozen broccoli
2 cooked chicken breasts, chopped
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup mayo (mayo Miracle Whip.  Trust me.)
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 to 2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella–whatever kind you’d like!)


Turn the oven on to 400F.  Fill the bottom of a 9×9 inch pan with broccoli.

Don’t you feel healthy just looking at that broccoli?
Well . . . that healthy broccoli is still under there.  Somewhere.

Mix the cream of chicken soup, mayo, lemon juice and half of the shredded cheese.  Add the cooked chicken.  Thin out the mixture with 1/4 cup of water, then spread the mixture over the broccoli.  Crumble the remaining cheese over the top and place in the oven for about 20 minutes.

When it’s all hot and bubbly, pull it out and dish it up with some rice.  It’s a perfect meal for those chilly, wet days!

  1. Yum! We make something very similar to this, called Chicken Divan. Basically it has the same ingredients, you just add curry to the mayo mixture and bread crumbs on the top. Delish!
