Broccoli, Rice, Cheese, and Chicken Casserole


This cheesy chicken broccoli rice casserole is very easy to make. You can leave out the onion but it does add flavor. It can be made ahead and frozen.

  • 2 cups water

  • 2 cups uncooked instant rice

  • 2 (10 ounce) cans chunk chicken, drained

  • 1 (16 ounce) package frozen chopped broccoli

  • 1 pound processed cheese food, cubed

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup

  • 1 cup milk

  • ¼ cup butter, cubed

  • 1 small white onion, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan; stir in instant rice, cover, and remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes.

  3. Mix prepared rice, chicken, broccoli, processed cheese, condensed mushroom soup, condensed chicken soup, milk, butter, and onion in a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 30 to 35 minutes. Stir halfway through cooking to help cheese melt evenly.


You can cut this recipe in half with good results. I use just 1 can of cream of mushroom soup when I make half.
