Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli & Rice Casserole

In our house we get a  rotisserie chicken about every other week. We love them! And I love the convenience of making up a couple sides, and dinner's ready. Not to mention the leftovers and all the possibilities. Last week I cut up the last of the chicken and threw together this quick and tasty casserole.

Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli & Rice Casserole

2 cups chicken, cooked & chopped 
2 broccoli crowns, cut up (about 3 - 4 cups)
2 - 3 tsp Original Mrs. Dash (or to taste)
1 can cream of chicken soup
4 cups cooked rice (I used leftover.)
3 cups cheese, grated - Set aside 1 cup for topping.
  •  Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 9x13 baking dish. 
  • Place the broccoli in a microwave safe bowl with a few tablespoons of water and cook on high for about 3 - 4 minutes. Just until barely tender. It will cook the rest of the way in the oven.
  • Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Remember to set aside 1 cup of the cheese for the top!!! 
  • Dump into baking dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese. 
  • Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and slightly browned. 
Does it get much easier than that? I don't think so! The whole family loved this. I especially loved how quick it was to throw together. And it was a complete meal in a bowl. Bonus!

I know the pictures aren't the best. Sorry! It smelled soo good baking, by the time it came out of the oven we were starving.  ; )  The leftovers were great for lunch the next day. I just added a little bit of milk when I reheated it. That made it just as saucy as the night before. Mmm!

Do you have a favorite way to use up leftover chicken? Please share.
