Cheesy Chicken Casserole

Dinner time again! I grew up eating a miriad of different casseroles…probably because we always had a houseful between all of us kids and then all of our friends lol. My Mom always made sure there was an awesome dinner on the table. 

Tonight I made cheesy chicken casserole, this one takes a few extra minutes to make but it’s So..worth it! This is a creamy delicious blend of ingredients, you’ll definitely be enjoying seconds! Here’s what you need! 

Preheat oven to 350°F.

2c brown rice cooked (I cook mine in chicken broth for a little extra flavor)

3c. Chopped broccoli

6 chicken tenders lightly salted and peppered, cooked, and cut into pieces 

Layer rice chicken and broccoli in a 9×13 glass Baker.

For the sauce add 1 c. heavy cream, 1/2c. Water, 1/2c sour cream, and two cups mild chedder cheese. Heat through until cheese melts and sauce is smooth. Pour over top of the rice, broccoli and chicken. 

For topping crush 3c of Ritz crackers, add 3Tbsp butter, mix until course crumbles are noted. Sprinkle over top of the casserole and bake for 15-20minutes or until topping is golden brown and crispy! Enjoy!! 

Cheesy Asparagus Stuffed Chicken

I eat a lot of chicken in case you haven’t noticed lol. I find chicken to be a really versatile protein, that’s easy to prepare. Tonight is no different I decided on a quick light meal including stuffed chicken, and corn on the cob. 

You can stuff chicken with lots of different things this time I chose Provolone cheese and asparagus! So yummy…

Here’s what you need! 

4md chicken breasts, sliced for stuffing

1bunch asparagus

4 slices provolone cheese

Salt

Pepper

Smoked paprika

Garlic powder

Preheat a cast iron pan on the stove top, and turn the oven on to 350°F. Salt and pepper inside of the chicken breast top with cheese and asparagus close and secure with a toothpick if needed. Then rub outside with salt pepper paprika and garlic powder. 

Once stuffed and seasoned add to the ungreased pan. Sear on both sides, then cover with foil and transfer into the oven for another 15-20 min. 

Chicken is done when internal temperature registers 165°F Remove from oven and spoon juices over the top before serving! Enjoy!!
