Chicken Broccoli Casserole

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

cooking spray

2 cups cooked rice

3 cups broccoli (recipe says cooked, I left mine raw and it was perfect)

6 cups boneless, skinless chicken breasts, (I baked my breasts then cut into cubes)

1 can, 10 oz condensed cream of chicken soup (I used the low fat one)

3 cups shredded cheddar

1 cup sour cream (I used fat free)

1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used the low fat version)

1 tsp fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper


Heat oven to 350 degrees


Lightly coat a 9X13 baking dish with cooking spray

Spread the rice evenly in the bottom of the dish

Add the Broccoli on top of the rice, spread evenly

I added the cubed chicken next

In a large bowl mix the soup, 2/3 of the cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, juice, salt and pepper. I also added 3/4 soup can of water to thin it out enough to pour

Pour the mixture on evenly, spreading to the edge, top with the remaining cheese and bake for 40 minutes until golden and bubbly. Let rest at least 5 minutes then serve.

Next time I serve this I will add diced water chestnuts for crunch and perhaps some crushed potato chips on top for additional texture. I will also double the broccoli**
