I cooked... don't laugh!- Easy chicken, brocolli and rice casserole.

I know I've mentioned it before, but I really don't cook. If it doesn't come in a box, bag, or can... I struggle to make it work.

That being said, Drew and I cooked an awesome chicken, brocolli and rice casserole the other night that was easy as can be... as in so easy I didn't even mess it up. It's also a recipe that required little prep, and is perfect for little ones (Fynn went to bed before she could try it, but she'll be having some for lunch tomorrow!) Thus, I had to share.


Here's how to do it:

Ingredients:
  • Chicken breast (we used 1 1/2 pounds)
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup-1 can
  • Cream of Chicken Soup-1 can
  • 1 1/2 cups of long grain brown rice (not the instant kind... though I don't know if it would make a difference, this is just what we used)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 bag (12 oz) frozen brocolli
  • pepper to taste
To prepare:
Mix the two soups, water, rice and (frozen) brocolli together in a large glass baking dish. Place the raw chicken breasts (we cut ours in half first) on top of the mixture. Add pepper to taste. Cover with tin foil.
 
To cook:
In a 375 degree oven bake the casserole for 1 1/2 hours. Don't stir. Don't mess with... maybe check on every now and then to make sure your house isn't burning down.

DONE.

That was it. It took us maybe 5 minutes to prepare (mostly because we had Fynn crawling around our ankles slowing us down). Then we just left it while it cooked and ate. It was delicious!
