“This week I’m changing it up a bit. I’m challenging players to create a meal or share a recipe that uses four ingredients – olive oil, chicken, cheese (any type) and a vegetable.”
Four Foods on Friday is in a different format now. So here’s my recipe for Chicken, Rice, Broccoli & Cheese Casserole:
- 1 cup brown rice
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 large can chicken breast
- 1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
- frozen broccoli
- 1 cup sharp shredded cheese
- freshly ground salt & pepper
Cook brown rice in water and olive oil according to directions on the package. As soon as it’s done, add the chicken and soup. Stir. Add just a little more water if necessary. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese. Place the frozen broccoli on top (break it apart) and top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Place the lid back on top of the pan and cook on medium low for 15-20 minutes until broccoli is tender. (or you can bake in oven at 350 degrees – it’s just too hot here in Texas to heat the oven…LOL) Add salt and pepper to taste.
I’ve not tried rice with cheese, sounds interesting 🙂
Wow this sounds amazing! I’m not a fan of brown rice but this sounds like a good way to make it yummy!
