Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole is one of my dishes that my oldest daughter would always request when I would go to her house to help her after having one of her babies.  I would always help with laundry, dishes, cooking and any other chores that I could to keep her from having to do anything but sleep and take care of her baby.

Is chicken rice and broccoli healthy?

It is healthier if you use brown rice vs. white rice. Chicken has protein and broccoli is loaded with vitamins and minerals.  However, this is not low carb. Drop the rice to reduce a lot of the carbs found in this Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole.

Can you cook raw chicken in a casserole?


Yes, you can, Quite a few people will do this to keep the chicken from overcooking. Just keep in mind the cooking time of the other ingredients so you don’t overcook those. Chicken should have an internal temperature of 165° to be safe to eat.

What goes with Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole?

Rarely do I have a side dish with a casserole. Casseroles are pretty much entire meals in themselves.  But, a side of a salad, applesauce or even some sort of bread would go well.
