Chicken Broccoli Casserole
3 Large Chicken Breasts (boneless, skinless)
2 Bags Boil in Bag Instant Rice
12 oz Chopped Broccoli Florets
2 cans Cream of Chicken Soup
1 1/2 cups Shredded Cheese (I like Velveeta or Cheddar)
Boil chicken breasts for 30 minutes then drain, shred and season with salt and pepper. Place bags of rice in a microwave safe dish, cover with water and cook for 12 minutes then drain well. Cook broccoli in microwave for 6 minutes (don't add any water). Mix chicken, rice, broccoli, soup (do not dilute soup) and cheese. Bake in a casserole dish (spray with non-stick cooking spray, 9x9 or 11x13)at 350* for 20-25 minutes.
You can make your own tweaks to this...wild rice instead of white, Cream of Mushroom instead of Cream of Chicken, Swiss instead of cheddar (would be especially nice with the mushroom soup). You can even top it with crushed Ritz Crackers and dot it with butter for a crumb topping....it's a casserole, it's not rocket science...play with it!
Serve with a tossed salad and fresh baked bread = Dinner Time!!!
