How To Make Chicken Broccoli Rice casserole

If you are not freezing this meal, preheat your oven to 350.

Start by preparing your rice and chicken. Place 4 cups of water in a large pot and heat
over medium high heat. Once the water boils, add in your rice and remove from the
heat. Be sure to cover the rice. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes and stir.

While the rice is doing its thing, place a skillet over medium heat. Add in olive oil and
your diced chicken.

Once the chicken has cooked, add in your seasonings. I use garlic salt and pepper.

In a large bowl or a casserole dish, all your rice, cooked chicken, cream of chicken
soup, milk and eggs. Mix everything until combined.
