I absolutely love casseroles! I don't know what it is about them, but they rock my world. But combine this love with a small amount of pickiness and I have a hard time finding really good casseroles that I love.
When a co-worker emailed me this recipe I quickly read all the ingredients and did a little "whoo hoo". I liked everything. And I was so happy I made it! It is absolutely delicious! Really!
Chicken Broccoli Casserole
Source: Trisha Yearwood's Cookbook: "Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen"
* 3-4 cups cooked rice
* 4 cups cooked broccoli cut into "chunks"
* 1 cup sour cream
* 1/2 cup mayonnaise
* 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
* 1 10 ounce can of cream of chicken soup
* 4 cups of grated cheese
* 4 chicken breasts cooked and chopped
* 1/2 tsp. salt
* 1/4 tsp. pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Spread cooked rice evenly in pan. Make a second layer with the cooked broccoli.
In a large mixing bowl mix sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, soup, 1/2 of the grated cheese, chicken, salt and pepper. Pour over broccoli.
Top with remaining cheese.
Bake 30-40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
It really is delicious! And it freezes great! I put a serving size in a tupperware container and freeze them. Then for lunch I can take out a container in the morning and microwave it at work for a home cooked, delicious lunch!
