Broccolli, Cheese and Chicken Casserole
I was on Facebook one day and someone wrote Cheesy Rice, YUM!
Boom that was all it took, I could not stop thinking about making a casserole with cheesy rice and chicken and just to make it seem healthy some Broccoli. I had some Velveeta to use up and the rest I pulled straight out of my ass! Not literally of course!
It is truly one of the best casseroles I have ever come up with! We had seconds last night, which was something we DON'T DO EVER!
3 cups cooked rice
1 head of broccoli, rinsed and cut into florets
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cheese soup
1/3 of a large brick of Velveeta cubed
1 package pre-shredded cheese of your choice
1 small can fire roasted chili peppers (mild)
milk about 1/2 cup
1/2 tbl Cayanne (or less to your taste)
Salt and Pepper
1 tsp onion powder
2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts
Cut your breasts into cubes and brown them on high heat in a non stick pan with a bit of olive oil
Assemble the rest of the ingredients (except the rice and chicken) into a large bowl and mix well, you will need to add some milk to make it a bit soupy
Add the chicken and the rice and mix well, adding more milk if needed. You don't want it too soupy, just a little
Pour into a well greased casserole pan (it makes a huge amount)
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes until bubbly. If it has not browned really well on top, broil it for 3 minutes or so
