If you have kids this is a perfect way to sneak in some vegetables without them even knowing what they are eating. Broccoli is so nutritious vegetable that is great to incorporate into your meals. Broccoli is filled with potassium, fiber, and vitamins K, and C. Making sure you get enough vitamin C in your daily diet during cold and flu season is imperative. This year the flu has been horrendous so making sure to create wholesome meals that will help protect your family is a must. This chicken casserole is so simple to whip up, and flavorful the whole family will be fighting over the last few scoopfuls in the pan.

This is one of the most requested recipes from my family. It's the only way my son will eat broccoli.

Can this be frozen before cooking? I want to stock my freezer and if I can’t freeze it I couldn’t do it on a weekend.

So I’ve made this twice, once with the rice button (10 min) and another doing manual 12 min. Both times the rice was hard. Any ideas? Also I used brown rice. Longer time? Soak first?

Brown rice takes like 25 minutes 😆

I just saw the video which was shared on the IP Community recipe site. It looks so good. The only thing I have a problem with is the ranch flavouring. I'm one of the very few that absolutely can't stand it. Is there any other packet you can recommend as a substitute?

Also you can try the Italian seasoning packet

Skip it and maybe try the garlic one or use your own seasonings
