Smothered Chicken and Broccoli

"Good work." I know I've added to my ever expanding recipe list when I those two words escape Scott's mouth.

If it's not coming from Pinterest I've found it on Abby's blog. This one is courtesy of Abby.

Talk about easy peasy!

Smothered Chicken and Broccoli
2 thawed chicken breast
1 package rice (your choice, there are about 500 different kinds of rice at the grocery store, pick the one that sounds good to you!)
1 can cream of chicken soup - 98% fat free (or use cream of whatever-you-like-at-the-moment soup; next time I make this I'm grabbing the cream of asparagus)
Approximately 1 cup fresh broccoli florets (I didn't measure, I just threw enough broccoli in to cover the pan)
Fresh cracked pepper.

Preheat oven to 400.
If you're prepping this for just two, use a 9x9 pan (I'll explain below what to do if you're cooking for a party greater than 2).
Grease the bottom and sides of your pan.
Add uncooked rice to the bottom of the pan.
Place thawed (raw) chicken atop the rice.
Add broccoli on to of the chicken.
Smother cream of chicken soup atop the broccoli.
Top it all off with the cracked pepper.
Bake for 30-45 minutes.
If you're cooking for 4 people...
4 chicken breast
2 packets of rice
2 cans of cream of fill-in-the-blank soup
Double the amount of broccoli

If you're cooking for 6 people...
6 chicken breasts
3 packets of rice
3 cans of cream of fill-in-the-blank soup
Triple the amount of broccoli

You get the idea. Obviously, as the number in your party expands so will the size of the baking dish you use.

This is some good stuff! The left-overs rival the dish hot out of the oven.

  2. Made this dish, the rice on the bottom is not cooked. Will try to salvage as best I can.
