Cheesy Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole is on the menu tonight. Its cheesy, creamy and made in only ONE POT!
I can’t get enough of these One Pot Meals. Maybe its because I don’t own a dishwasher or maybe I’m just not in the mood to juggle multiple cooking devices at once. Regardless, this dish is one of my favorites. You can’t go wrong with rice, chicken and cheesy goodness.
If your not a fan of broccoli, you can easily switch it out for another vegetable. Chopped asparagus, frozen peas or cauliflower – just to name a few.
This recipe can even be made spicy by adding crushed red pepper flakes and a bit of tabasco sauce. Don’t be afraid to experiment with additional ingredients, as long as you don’t forget the fresh parsley garnish. The parsley packs so much of that fresh herb flavor into this casserole. It also looks really pretty! 🙂
On a side note, I absolutely love my new Curtis Stone 14″ non-stick multi-purpose deep dish pan. It holds a crazy amount of food. I first used it for my Shrimp Scampi Pasta with Garlic Mushroom Sauce. I bought it from HSN a few months ago, and I use it constantly. Go check it out!
Look at that oozy melty pan of deliciousness! This is why I like to grate my own cheese whenever possible. In my experience, when using the store-bought shredded cheese, it won’t turn out the same way. It browns faster and just doesn’t quite have that gooey texture. However, the taste will still be there either way.
I would love to hear if you enjoyed this casserole as much as we did!
