Chicken Broccoli and Rice Bake

by Laura

Today, I have one of those great all in one meals. You could call it casserole, but “bake” seems to be the new PC name for the good old “casserole” recipe. This dish is creamy and comforting casserole – which makes it more likely for my family to eat the broccoli in it. It also helps that this Chicken Broccoli and Rice Bake uses chopped broccoli instead of floretts. This one is one that you can freeze too!

Wondering about the cooking directions if you portion it into individual servings before freezing. Cooking the whole amount at once yields too much food for one or two people.
