Chicken Broccoli and Wild Rice Casserole

This is an easy casserole for dinner or your next potluck meal with very few ingredients you can easily already have on hand in your kitchen. 


1 Box Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice (fast recipe)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can broccoli cheese soup
1 cup shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend)
2 cups cooked chicken (cubed or shredded)
2 lbs frozen broccoli (steamer kind)
1 can french fried onions (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350. Prepare wild rice according to the instructions on the box. Steam broccoli in the microwave according to instructions on bag. In a bowl, mix together the soups and shredded cheese. Layering in a casserole dish (I used my round deep Corningware casserole dish), start with 1/3 of soup/cheese mixture, then half the broccoli, half the chicken and repeat the layering ending with the soup/cheese mixture last on top. Bake uncovered in the oven for 1 hour. In the last 5 minutes, sprinkle french fried onions on top and continue to cook for the remaining time or until the onions brown. 

My husband liked the recipe, but said he would have liked more rice in it. So consider adding two boxes of rice instead of one. Better yet, add in on package of boil-in-bag brown rice. Hope you try out and enjoy the recipe. Let me know how it turns out for you!

  1. When do you add the rice that you prepared? In the layering or after?
