  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken breast
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, blanched
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Optional topping: crushed buttery crackers or breadcrumbs


1. Prepare the Casserole Dish: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a baking dish with butter or cooking spray.

2. Mix the Sauce: In a mixing bowl, combine the condensed cream of chicken soup, mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Mix until well combined and creamy.

3. Layer the Ingredients: Spread half of the cooked rice evenly at the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with a layer of blanched broccoli florets, followed by a layer of shredded chicken.

4. Add Creamy Goodness: Pour half of the creamy sauce mixture over the layers in the baking dish. Sprinkle a generous layer of shredded cheddar cheese on top.

5. Repeat the Layers: Create another layer by adding the remaining rice, followed by more blanched broccoli and shredded chicken.

6. Sauce and Cheese Again: Pour the remaining creamy sauce over the layers. Sprinkle more shredded cheddar cheese on top, ensuring each bite is rich with cheesy goodness.

7. Add a Crunchy Finish: For a satisfying crunch, top the casserole with crushed buttery crackers or breadcrumbs. This adds an irresistible texture contrast to the creamy layers.

8. Bake to Perfection: Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the casserole is heated through.

9. Savor the Comfort: Once baked, remove the casserole from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. Dive into the layers of cheesy, creamy, and comforting goodness.
