How to Make Leftover Chicken with Broccoli, & Rice Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook the rice as indicated on the packages. It takes about 7 minutes for one package, about 7-9 for 2.
  2. For the chicken you can use rotisserie chicken or cold leftover chicken breast. Cube those into about 1/2"-1" cubes.
  3. Chop the broccoli to your liking. I steam it beforehand. These are also leftovers.
  4. Add the chicken and broccoli to the bottom with the chicken broth (You know, the stuff from the box!). Add rice on top once it's done cooking on the stove. Mix around if you like. Then put the Parmesan on top. (I use freshly grated Parmesan. You can use whatever cheese you want.)
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 deg F. Cook for approx. 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is nice and gooey. Enjoy!
