One Pot Cheesy Chicken Broccoli & Rice

A quick fix casserole, this dish puts a whole dinner of family favorites together in one pot.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 2-3 cups diced rotisserie chicken
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 4 tsp minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup basmati rice
  • 1 10 oz can cream of chicken soup
  • 2-3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • chopped fresh parsley, optional


  • Heat the olive oil in a large cast iron skillet, or dutch oven, over medium heat. Stir in the onions, and let them cook 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir in the garlic, and cook for about 30 seconds-- until fragrant.
  • Stir in the rice, soup, and 2 cups of broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat down to medium low, and continue cooking until the rice is fully cooked, stirring occasionally, about 12-15 minutes. Add more broth, if needed, as the rice cooks. Taste and season the mixture with salt & pepper, to taste.
  • Return the heat to medium, and stir in the chicken, broccoli, and half of the cheese. Continue cooking until the broccoli softens a bit, stirring occasionally, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly out over top of the skillet, and put it in the oven under the broiler- just until it's melted and begun to brown in spots.
  • Sprinkle the dish with parsley, if using, and serve.
