Introduction:

This is one of our favorite weeknight meals. It’s great for leftover chicken or turkey, but we’ve also been known to quickly pan fry some chicken specifically for use in the meal.

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups minute rice

3 cups broccoli spears, cooked and drained

2 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey

1 can (10 oz) Campbell’s Condensed Cream of Broccoli Soup

1 3/4 cups hot water

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

3 tbsps fine dry bread crumbs

1 tbsp butter or margarine, melted

Instructions:

1. Sprinke rice in the bottom of a greased 2-quart shallow baking dish. Arrange broccoli and chicken on top.

2. In a small bowl, mix soup, water and thyme; pour evenly over the broccoli and chicken. Sprinkle with cheese.

3. Mix bread crumbs and melted butter; sprinkle over cheese. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes or until the rice is tender.

Options: If leftover chicken or turkey isn’t available, then you can saute  12 oz of boneless chicken breasts (cubed) in vegetable oil for about 5 minutes (or no longer pink) and continue on with the rest of the recipe.

Comments:

My household is a big fan of mushrooms, so I substitute the Broccoli Soup with Cream of Mushroom for a slightly different flavor. We also love the crumb topping, so I tend to increase that a bit as well. The key to the crumb topping is the large quantity of bread crumbs to relatively small amount of butter. Keep mixing and you’ll get a nice topping you can sprinkle with your fingers. If it seems too runny, just add more crumbs.

Our Home Rating? 4.5/5 bites
