  • 1 cup white uncooked rice not quick cook
  • 8 oz frozen broccoli
  • 10.5 oz can cream of mushroom soup or preferred flavor

Cook That

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a baking dish or casserole, stir together all ingredients except the chicken. (Reserve half a cup of the cheddar cheese.) Combine well.
  3. Place the chicken on top of the broccoli and cheddar mixture. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the rice is tender.
  4. Top the cooked casserole with the remaining cheese and let stand for a few minutes. The sauce will thicken.
  5. Serve hot.
