  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/4 cups white long grain rice, uncooked
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets, uncooked
  • 10.5 oz. Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup

How To Make Broccoli Rice Cheese and Chicken Casserole:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Prepare Chicken: Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and season with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Heat butter in a large pot over medium heat until melted. Add the chicken and cook until golden brown on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove and set aside. (Skip this step if using diced rotisserie chicken.)
