Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice

Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice is creamy and filling and even freezable!

Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice has been a family favorite for over 2 decades and can be made with the chicken for a whole meal in one dish or it can be a side dish without it.  We almost always make it with chicken as a meal and leftovers are great!  I love meals like this that I can have all of the prep dishes cleaned up while it is in the oven.  I can eat my meal with a clean kitchen and after dinner cleanup is very easy.

Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice makes two 9×13 pans.  It looks like a lot but it goes very fast at our house.  It can be frozen as a whole casserole or in individual servings for lunches.

Instructions
  1. Gather your ingredients.
  2. Add rice and chicken broth or water and bouillon to microwave safe bowl and cook, uncovered, for about 26 minutes. Microwaves vary some so check every 6-8 minutes and stir.
  3. While the rice is cooking, boil the broccoli until soft. My preference is florets, not chopped pieces. They cook faster and are just nicer.
  4. When rice is cooked, put half into each of two greased 9x13 baking pans.
  5. When broccoli is cooked until soft, drain and then add cheeses, soups and milk. Stir until blended and cheeses are mostly melted.
  6. Spread half onto each pan of rice. Do not stir.
  7. Bake in preheated 375* oven for 20 minutes or until bubbly.
