Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli & Rice Bake
Recipe by: Holly Lofthouse
2 chicken breasts
2 cups whole grain brown rice
1/2 tbs ranch dressing seasoning mix
1/2 c sour cream
1 c milk
1 can cream of chicken soup
12 oz frozen bag of chopped broccoli
2 c sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 c panko bread crumbs
1 c crushed cheddar crackers, crushed ( I used Cheez-Its)
While your chicken is boiling start cooking your rice according to the package directions.
Once rice is cooked and fluffed, add to your bowl of shredded chicken.
Microwave your broccoli ( I get the 12 oz green giant bag that are microwavable) and cook according to the directions, then add to the chicken and rice bowl.
In a medium saucepan heat the soups, milk, and sour cream until heated, making sure to stir often. Once heated through, add the soup mixture to the chicken, broccoli and rice bowl. Stir until thoroughly combined. Then pour mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Spread evenly throughout dish. Sprinkle your cheddar cheese evenly over the mixture.
Meanwhile mix your crushed cheddar crackers and panko bread crumbs in a small bowl with the melted butter, then sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the cheese. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly! **NOTE- If you dont want the top crunchy then leave off the crackers and bread crumbs**
