  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts ~1 pound
  • 3/4 cup uncooked rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 14 oz frozen broccoli
  • 1 packet 12 oz Campbell's Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Oven Sauce
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a 9 x 13 baking dish, add in the water, uncooked rice, frozen broccoli, and about 10 oz of the cheesy sauce. Stir together.
  • Trim your chicken breasts and season with salt and pepper. Lay on top of the broccoli mixture.
  • Pour the remaining sauce on top of the chicken and use a spatula to coat it.
  • Sprinkle with panko bread crumbs (and I added a dash of paprika).
  • Bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes-1 hour or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender.
