Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water, chicken broth, and rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • While rice is cooking, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Place shredded chicken in a large casserole dish. Add soup, water chestnuts, Cheddar cheese, broccoli, mushrooms, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Stir well, then spread the top so it's even.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until nicely browned and bubbly, 30 to 45 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Cream of celery or chicken soup works too.

You can use any kind of shredded cheese you like.

I make this dish without chicken (and chicken broth) for my vegetarian friends. Just add more veggies.
