Cheesy Chicken Rice Bake

Cheesy Chicken Rice Bake - this delicious dinner ideas is filled with chicken, broccoli, rice, cream cheese and a TON of flavor!

We love chicken. We love rice. We love broccoli. And we love casseroles.

When I spotted this recipe on Kraft, I knew it would be delicious because it has all the ingredients I listed above. Oh yeah, and it has cheese AND cream cheese – you definitely can’t go wrong when multiple versions of cheese are involved!

Today’s recipe for Cheesy Chicken Rice Bake is filled with so much flavor and is very simple to make. I’m not going to lie, but not all my kids love broccoli so a few were picking it out. Fortunately, the dish was so flavorful that most of them didn’t even realize it was in there (win)!! My husband likes the cheese on top of anything a little more cooked so we broiled it for the last minute or two. This is another dinner recipe to add to the rotation. It is hearty, simple and delicious.

Here is the recipe:

    This was great!! My husband is not a veggie lover, -and he had seconds of this! Even My 3 yr old and 11 yr old boys loved it! I did sub brown rice for the white because that’s what I had on hand, and I used a packet of zesty Italian dressing mix instead of the other seasonings (not really on purpose- I had a screaming infant in my arms and didn’t read closely- I often make a pot pie that uses chicken broth, cream cheese and Italian dressing, so it just made sense!) and it was DELICIOUS!! I’ll be making it this way again next time. Thanks for the recipe!
