Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole Recipe:


  • 1 big can (10.5 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 2 bags (about 14 oz each) chicken-flavored rice sides
  • 1.5 to 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 cups Mexican blend shredded cheese


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 405°F (207°C).
  2. Prepare the Casserole Base:
    • In a greased 9×13-inch baking pan, combine the cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, and the contents of the two bags of chicken-flavored rice sides. Mix them together until well combined.
  3. Arrange the Chicken:
    • Place the boneless chicken on top of the rice mixture in the baking pan. Make sure the chicken is evenly distributed.
  4. Season the Chicken:
    • Sprinkle the chicken with garlic powder and dried parsley. These seasonings will add flavor to the chicken as it cooks.
  5. Cheese Layer:
    • Sprinkle the Mexican blend shredded cheese evenly over the top of the chicken and rice mixture. This will create a delicious cheesy crust.
  6. Bake:
    • Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes. The chicken should be cooked through, and the rice should be tender.
  7. Additional Cheese Topping:
    • After 45 minutes of baking, add an extra layer of shredded cheese on top of the casserole. Return it to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  8. Serve:
    • Remove the casserole from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving. This will allow the flavors to meld together.
  9. Garnish (Optional):
    • Garnish with additional parsley or any preferred herbs for a fresh touch.
  10. Enjoy:
    • Serve the Cheesy Chicken and Rice Casserole hot and enjoy a comforting and flavorful meal!
