Cheesy chicken broccoli rice bake that is hearty, filling, and healthy. Packed full of fresh broccoli and diced bell peppers, jasmine rice, shredded chicken, and melted cheese. Just what you need for an easy quick weeknight dinner to feed your family.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice or whatever rice you have

  • 3 1/4 cups water

  • 1 lb shredded or canned chunk chicken

  • 1 lb chopped broccoli

  • 2 cups diced green bell peppers

  • 1 lb shredded cheese ( optional )

  • 1 tspn minced or fresh diced garlic

  • 1 tspn italian seasoning

  • 1 tspn ground black pepper

  • 1/2 tspn salt

Directions

  • Chop your broccoli and bell peppers.
  • In a large bowl, mix all of your ingredients together, except the shredded cheese.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray your casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Pour the entire mixture into your sprayed casserole dish.
  • Cover your casserole dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove your dish from the oven and uncover the foil.
  • Now cover the top of the dish with your shredded cheese and bake uncovered for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes, this way everything stays together when you scoop it into your bowls.

Notes

  • For a healthier vegan option, you can omit the chicken and add more of your favorite veggies. To still get the same taste, you can try adding a couple of chicken bouillon cubes to your mixture just for flavor.

Hi, I'm Stacy. I love blogging about beauty, skincare, DIY, crafting, gardening, natural living, and free printables. It's so much fun helping my readers discover tips, tricks, articles, and recipes. Plus, it's even better when I can help them learn to save money! I am mom to 3 children - an adorable little dwarf hamster named Squishy and 2 kitties named Katherine and Nola. In addition to blogging, I also singlehandedly create all the recipes, do all the product research, craft all the products, build and design my websites, plus handle all the SEO work myself... oh yeah... and I'm the blogger for both The Southern Journal and Southern Homemadeables. In my spare time (which is rare) I enjoy reading books, cooking, being anywhere on the water, flower gardening, spending good times with friends & family, and listening to music.
