  •  Tips
    • Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer- just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you’re using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.
  • Step 1Heat the oven to 375°F.  While the oven is heating, stir the soup, water, rice and broccoli in an 11x8x2-inch baking dish. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Place the chicken on the rice mixture. Sprinkle the chicken with the paprika.  Cover the baking dish.
  • Step 2Bake for 45 minutes or until the chicken is done and the rice is tender.  Season to taste before serving.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN BROCCOLI RICE CASSEROLE

A process shot for making chicken broccoli rice casserole

You start by whisking together a can of Cream of Chicken Soup with some water in your dish.

Add the raw chicken, frozen broccoli florets (yes, still frozen!), and uncooked rice. I used baby broccoli florets because they’re the perfect size for my kids to eat without even cutting them!

The rice cooks slowly in the pan, absorbing the liquid, releasing its starches, and creating this great creamy consistency. With an optional sprinkle of cheese on top, the end result is a one-pot Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole that looks (and tastes) like you spent hours slaving over a hot stove!

The meat is juicy, the broccoli is tender, and the dish is like a giant, comforting hug on a cool evening. Best of all, you only have to spend about 5 minutes dumping the ingredients into your pan. That’s a major WIN!
