Hearty and Delicious, this chicken broccoli and rice bake will satisfy all appetites! Plus it's perfect for a make-ahead dinner or freezer meal.
The cold winter weather makes me want to bake. I bake breads, desserts, and dinner! Most most recent baked dish is a Chicken Broccoli and Rice Dish. The oven is perfect to have going on cold days because it just provides another source of heat! Another cold weather favorite is Ham and Rice Casserole and this Chicken Pasta Bake.
You just can't beat a warm, hearty meal when it's cold and snowy outside. I made a double batch of this chicken, broccoli and rice bake and threw one in the oven for dinner and the other in the freezer for later. Two meals without any extra work!
I usually make this on a weekend and get everything together in the morning and then put it in the refrigerator. At dinner time I pop it in the oven and dinner feels like a ready made meal!
Can I freeze this chicken casserole?
Yes! This dish can be frozen. To freeze, allow mixture to cool. Cover with foil, label and freeze.
To use pull from freezer at least 6 hours before baking to allow casserole to partially thaw. Bake for 60 minutes until bubbly.
