Easy Broccoli and Chicken Casserole

What you need:

  • 1 can condensed broccoli cheese soup
  • 1 package chicken stuffing mix
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Mix together broccoli cheese soup (don’t dilute!), cooked chicken and broccoli florets in a large bowl. Transfer mixture to an 11×7-inch baking dish. Prepare the chicken stuffing mix according to the instructions in the package then add it to the baking dish. Top with cheddar cheese. Cover and bake in a pre-heated oven (350F) for 20 minutes. When ready, remove cover and continue baking for another 15 minutes. Allow to cool for several minutes before serving.

Apricot Spiced Chicken

What you need:

  • 4 boneless and skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/3 cup apricot preserves
  • 1/4 cup chilli sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hot mustard
  • Salt to taste

Combine apricot preserves, chilli sauce, mustard and salt (you can season with pepper if desired) in a saucepan and stir together over medium heat for about 3 minutes, or until heated through. Coat a large baking pan with cooking spray. Place the chicken in the baking pan and broil for 6 to 8 minutes per side, brushing generously with spicy apricot sauce during the last few minutes of cooking. Allow to cool and sit for a few minutes before serving.

Mexican-Style Chicken Rice

What you need:

  • 1 can diced tomatoes with onions
  • 1 package Mexican-style rice and pasta mix
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 cups cubed chicken breasts, cooked
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Melt the butter in a skillet and cook the rice and pasta mix for 5 minutes or until browned. Add the tomatoes (with liquid), some water (about 3/4 cup) and the contents of the rice seasoning packet. Bring the mixture to a boil. Lower heat and continue cooking for 10 minutes. When ready, stir in the chicken and jalapeno. Cover and cook until liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes.
