Chicken and Rice Casserole

Chicken and Rice Casserole

This recipe uses leftover chicken that you can have from roasting a chicken, a rotisserie chicken, or even grilled chicken (really any type of chicken will do and we sometimes cook chicken to use just for this recipe). It is a simple one pot recipe that is full of flavor that includes vegetables so no need to make anything extra!

  • Cooking Method

    Prep Time: 5 mins

    Cook Time: 20-25 mins

    Cooking Method: Stove and Oven

    Cooking Temp: Med-High and 400℉


  • Ingredients

    • 3 cups leftover roast chicken or rotisserie chicken whatever you have on hand 
    • 2 TBS butter 
    • 2 TBS olive oil 
    • 1 head of broccoli cut into florets 
    • 1/2 head of cauliflower, chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, chopped 
    • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped 
    • 1 cup jasmine rice 
    • 2 cups chicken broth 
    • 1/4 cup sour cream 
    • 1/2 cup parmesano reggiano, freshly grated 
  • Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 400℉
    2. In an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat sauté the broccoli, cauliflower, and garlic for a couple minutes. Make sure not to overcook the veggies since they will still cook in the oven.
    3. Then add the 3 cups of chicken and mix until everything together. Next add the chopped tomatoes, 1 cup of rice, and 1/4 cup of parmesan and stir just to mix.
    4. In a separate cup combine the chicken broth and sour cream then mix together and pour in the skillet. Bring to a slight bubble which usually takes a minute.
    5. Cover with a lid and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until the rice is cooked. 
    6. When it comes out of the oven top with the remaining 1/4 cup of parmesan then serve. 
    7. Enjoy this easy and great one pot weeknight meal!
