Four Foods On Friday 85

“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.
