Six ingredients, one casserole dish – Cheesy Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole is perfect for busy weeknights!
Six ingredients, one casserole dish - Cheesy Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole is perfect for busy weeknights! | Persnickety Plates AD If I’m being honest, my least favorite time of day to be a mom is from around 6-8 pm. In that two hour window, I  drive home, figure out what’s for dinner, make/get/eat dinner, give Julia a bath, chase Julia to get her dressed, read books, then hope for a smooth bedtime. Individually, all those things are typically my favorites, but squeezing them into a tight, hectic window every night is tiring.

Six ingredients, one casserole dish - Cheesy Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole is perfect for busy weeknights! | Persnickety Plates AD Campbell’s has a new line of oven sauces and after trying this one, I want to try them all. I need more recipes like this in my life. Six ingredients, one casserole dish, very minimal cleanup, and all of us loved it. Julia ate way more of it than I’m used to seeing her eat lately. A protein, carb, and veggie all in one dish.

What’s even better than having an easy weeknight dinner that helps the evening go smoothly? Having leftovers the next day so I have even less to think about. I made the original dish on Friday night and ate leftovers for lunch on Saturday.
