This is a quick, easy way leftover chicken and leftover rice... you my add seasonings according to you preference. If you like, you can add cream cheese and/or Parmesan cheese to the roux for an Alfredo-like casserole.

Instead of using canned cream of chicken (or any "cream of" soup),
a very easy roux is made from cornstarch, butter and milk. I use a soy free butter substitute and lactose free, fat milk due to lactose intolerance... no one has ever noticed these substitutions.

How to Make Gluten Free Chicken, Broccoli and Brown Rice Casserole Recipe


  1. Combine chicken, broccoli and rice in an ovenproof casserole dish. Toss to mix.
  2. To make the roux: melt the butter in a medium size saucepan.
    Add the cornstarch and blend thoroughly. While blending, add the milk and seasonings. Continue stirring until a cream soup consistency is reached.
    At this point, you may add the cheese(s). Since the cheese will thicken the sauce, you may have to add more milk.
  3. Pour the sauce over the chicken/broccoli/rice mixture. Top with gluten free bread crumbs.
  4. Bake in pre-heated 350 F oven, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes (depending upon your oven).

    Remove from oven and serve.
