12 Days of Christmas 2017, Day 7: [Recipe] Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole

Trisha Yearwood’s Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole is something I discovered while looking for a way to use up leftover turkey. Keeping that in mind, I figured this time of year is a great time to share this recipe.

We like this chicken broccoli rice casserole so much that I’ve even gone as far as to cook chicken just to make it, but you can use any leftover cooked poultry in this recipe. I’ve also used a couple of cans of Kirkland chicken breast chunks and this turns out just fine.

I’ve lightened up the recipe just a bit by using light sour cream, low-sodium soup, and brown rice (and more of it). This is my lightened up version of Trisha’s casserole masterpiece.
