  • 1 to 1/2 lbs skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into cutlets or strips
  • 1 cup white uncooked rice not quick cook
  • 8 oz frozen broccoli
  • 10.5 oz can cream of mushroom soup or preferred flavor
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese divided
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a baking dish or casserole, stir together all ingredients except the chicken. (Reserve half a cup of the cheddar cheese.) Combine well.
  • 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.
  • Top the cooked casserole with the remaining cheese and let stand for a few minutes. The sauce will thicken.
  • Serve hot.


Cooking times will vary based on your oven, thickness and size of chicken, size of dish and type of rice.
