Chances are you already have most of the items on hand either in the pantry or the refrigerator. Chicken Broccoli Rice Bake is a great dish that is sure to satisfy the hungriest appetite in your household.
Chicken Broccoli Rice bake starts with a creamy cheese sauce combine with grilled or baked chicken breast, broccoli cuts, real bacon pieces, cooked rice and your choice of shredded cheese (white cheddar or Monterey jack recommended). The only thing else you will need is your favorite casserole dish and a hot oven. I recommend a 9X9 baking dish as I believe this will feed everyone and there will be plenty of leftovers. This dish freezes well so you can make this in advance, unthaw it before reheating in the oven or microwave.
The flavor profile of this casserole is amazing! The cream cheese sauce is made with butter, Monterey Jack Cheese, and just a hint of nutmeg. Tender grilled chicken breast, broccoli cuts, bacon pieces, cooked rice all covered in shredded Monterey Jack Cheese creates one delicious and hearty meal. Feel free to substitute your favorites cheese in this recipe as I am sure it will be a success at the dinner table.
I encourage you to try this recipe as I believe you will make this Chicken Broccoli Rice Bake regularly.
