Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken breasts diced
  • 4 tablespoons butter divided
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup rice
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 4 cups broccoli
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese divided
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large skillet, add the diced chicken and 2 tablespoons of the butter. Next, add in the spices. Stir to combine. Allow the chicken to cook until no longer pink, about 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add in the rice, chicken broth and milk. Stir to combine everything. Bring to a soft boil, reduce heat and simmer for 8-9 minutes with a lid. Once the rice is tender, remove from heat.
  • Add in the milk, cream of chicken soup and ½ cup of the cheese. Stir to combine.
  • Add in the broccoli and place the lid back on the skillet. Allow the residual heat to blanch the broccoli for a few minutes.
  • Scoop the casserole mixture into a 9x13 casserole dish and bake for 10 minutes.
  • While the casserole is baking, melt the other 2 tablespoons of butter and combine it with the breadcrumbs. After the 10 minutes is up, add the breadcrumb mixture and the remaining cheese to the top of the casserole.
  • Place the casserole back in the oven and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese on top has melted and the sides are bubbling.
  • Remove, serve with your favorite side and enjoy.
