One-Pan Chicken Broccoli Casserole

chicken broccoli casserole


I wanted to share this one-pan recipe with you all because I just love it! I love one-pan recipes because you literally use one pan whole time you prepare this dish. How amazing is that? Pretty amazing if I say so myself. I also love casserole recipes as well. They are super easy to prepare. They also last my family a couple of days. Which means leftover. Which is kind of nice sometimes for the chef. First of all this dish has rice, chicken, cheese and broccoli. You can’t get any more simple and delicious for one dish. I hope you love it as much as I do. Enjoy and eat up! To find out all the great benefits of broccoli can bring to your diet check out The Benefits Of Broccoli¬†

Next, push all the chicken and onions over to the one side of the pan. Put another tablespoon of olive oil on the side with nothing on it. Next pour your 1 cup of rice on the hot oil. Saute for a couple of minutes before adding the chicken broth. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil until the rice is almost done.
