I have a confession.  I’ve never made stuffed chicken anything before. First step, admitting it.  Now that’s out of the way. How about this?  Genius, right?  I decided to take the classic Chicken, Broccoli and Rice casserole and turned it into Rice and Broccoli Stuffed Chicken.  And, bonus, it was actually easy.  What?

It looks like I slaved over this meal. I didn’t. All I did was boil up some rice and mix it with Cream of Broccoli soup.  Tenderized the chicken.  Rolled up the rice/soup mixture in the chicken. Baked it.  That’s it.  Took me in between 10 and 15 minutes to prepare it all. While it was baking, I started on the sides  Seriously some easy stuff to do.

I served this with some more broccoli, salad and some ciabatta rolls.  We didn’t have the cheese that you would normally have in the casserole, but you could easily sprinkle some on top of the chicken the last 5 minutes of the baking time.  There were quite a few of us that are trying to cut back on the cheese intake.  This seemed like a good meal to go without it.

Will you add cheese?

Rock on!

  3. Tenderize the chicken with a meat tenderizer.
  4. Place a couple spoonfuls of rice/soup mixture on the chicken.
  5. Roll the chicken up and secure with toothpicks. Don't use the colored ones like I did if you don't want the color seeping into the chicken. Ooops.
  6. Place the stuffed chicken on a foil lined, sprayed baking sheet. Spray or lightly oil the top of the chicken with olive oil. Sprinkle with seasoning, if desired.
