Creamy Chicken & Broccoli Over Rice

 


 

Ok straight off the bat, I’m gonna tell you why I liked this dish:  It tastes like cheesy broccoli and rice casserole (but with chicken).  There, that’s the reason.  I stinkin’ LOVE that cheesy broccoli and rice casserole.  I’ve mentioned my love of it before when I posted about the Broccoli-Cheddar Chicken Braid.  That particular dish was like my favorite casserole rolled up in crescent rolls.  The dish you see above is like the casserole just broken apart and spread out.  Still delicious.

The recipe I was using actually didn’t include the rice.  It was simply for the creamy chicken and broccoli.  Once I saw just how creamy this dish really is, I knew I had to throw it on a bed of rice to absorb all that creamy goodness.  I recommend you do the same thing!  That creamy rice was actually my favorite part of the whole meal.

    • It would be 1/2 c of rice topped with 1/4 of the total chicken and broccoli mixture (approximately 1 breast per serving) Does that make sense? Sorry I don’t know exactly the serving size in terms of how many ounces.

  1. I made this last night with brown rice and some extra veggies and it was quite good. So today I took the leftovers and added some extra cream of chicken soup, all the leftover rice and other veggies and also some chicken stock and made soup! It turned out really well so I thought I’d share a good way to re-purpose the leftovers!

  2. Everyone in my house gobbled this up! I made it exactly as the recipe says, but I did make it a little easier by buying fresh chicken tenders instead of having to cut up raw or really hot cooked chicken breasts. Thanks for a easy and normal recipe!
