How To Make This Chicken Rice Casserole
This dish is ready in only 30 minutes, and is extremely simple to make. Begin with cooking your chicken in onions until it’s not pink anymore. Incorporate the broth with the the cream of chicken soup. Add the rice and cook the rice.
The rice should take around fifteen minutes for cooking according to the kind of rice you choose to use. It is possible to utilize quick rice for speeding it up. Brown rice can take more time to cook.
Incorporate the cheese and broccoli, and cook for a few minutes or until the broccoli begins to soften.
Add more cheese, then close the lid until it melts. The chicken is wonderfully soft and juicy, while the rice is cooked to perfection. It’s absolutely delicious!

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cube of chicken Bouillon (or 1 teaspoon bouillon powder)
1/2 cup of water (optional 1/2 cup water (optional, I added it to to disperse the flavor of the chicken, however the water from the vegetables while they cook could suffice if the dish appears too watery for your taste)
1 Tbspn olive oil
1/4 tsp of pepper (or as you like)
1/4 c sour cream
1 cup ricotta
Grease a 9×13 inch casserole pan. I used bacon leftover grease to enhance flavor. pan spray could work as well (just perhaps not as delicious ;))

in a bowl medium size,, mix the chicken pieces and garlic powder, as well as the sour cream , and ricotta cheese together. Mix till blended.
After about 10 hours of cooking vegetables After 10 minutes, add the broccoli mix into the bowl along with the chicken. Stir until blended.

Add your mixture to the pan that has been greased and spread it out evenly.
Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese on the top, and then bake the whole thing into the oven!
