“This has been a family favorite for over 15 years. It's easy to make and a crowd pleaser. It can also be made the day before and baked when you are ready to enjoy it.” - by Stacy P
Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch casserole
- Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets, and cook uncovered until just tender, about 4 minutes. Drain in a colander, then immediately rinse with cold water for several minutes until cold to stop the cooking process. Once the broccoli is cold, drain well, chop into small pieces, and place into a mixing bowl.
- Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Stir the cooked rice, chicken, Cheddar cheese, cream of chicken soup, yogurt, almonds, curry powder, garlic powder, pepper, and lemon juice into the broccoli until evenly mixed. Spoon the mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish.
- Bake in the preheated oven until hot and bubbly, about 30 minutes.

"Hi! This is my recipe. I always cook the rice in the microwave because it's faster. I add 1 c. uncooked rice and 2 c. water in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for around 20 mins...." See more Also, I steam the broccoli. You can also use 2 pkgs of frozen broccoli to save cook time. The recipe takes a while to make, but it is worth it. You can also make it the day ahead of time and bake in the oven when you are ready to eat. It might need a little longer to bake if its chilled all the way through. Enjoy!"
"I made this recipe with one change added to it. Instead of using canned soup I put in vegetable broth using equal amounts of cornstarch and flour for thickening. I think this is a healthier alternativ..." See moree than using regular soup that can be quite salty. I will definitely make this recipe again."
