Who doesn’t love a combo of chicken and rice, right?! This healthy chicken and rice casserole is one of my older healthy casseroles I gave a makeover. Originally I used a skillet to pre-cook chicken, a pot to cook rice and then a baking dish to bake casserole in.

Whoa-whoa-whoa, it’s 2019! We can do so much better and prepare chicken broccoli and rice casserole without canned soup, and in just ONE POT. One pot, my friends. One Lodge dutch oven pot, I love it!


Isn’t it a beauty?! Not mushy and yet moist, with moderate amount of animal products and with 1.5 lbs of broccoli, this healthy chicken and brown rice casserole will become a staple in your house. You and yours will love it! So easy to make as well.

So, 👋 Betty and 🤝 Olena. Let’s do it!

Store: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Freeze: Fully cook, cool completely and freeze in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Thaw in a fridge overnight. Reheat in a microwave or in the oven at 375 F for 10 minutes.

I like to use brown jasmine or basmati rice because grains stay separated once cooked. I used organic bouillon cubes to make vegetable stock.
