Quick and Easy Broccoli Rice Casserole

Quick and easy broccoli-rice casserole is a side dish you can put together in no time. I am using fresh broccoli in this recipe—I think it tastes better. You can simply steam this in a steamer for a couple of minutes before using. You could also use frozen broccoli.

Quick and Easy Broccoli Rice Casserole

Make quick and easy broccoli rice casserole for any meal. This is a great dish to make ahead and reheat later.


  • 12 to 16 ounces chopped broccoli (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (about 1 small onion)
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup diced Velveeta cheese, in small cubes
  • 1 (10.75-ounce) can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 cups cooked white rice


If you are using fresh broccoli, steam in a steamer until just done. Follow the directions on your steamer, or steam with a pot and a steamer insert. This takes 5 to 7 minutes.

In a medium saucepan, cook the onion in the butter until transparent. Add the cheese, soup, broccoli, and rice to the onions and stir through to melt the cheese and heat it all. You can serve this dish now, or you can put it in an 8-inch square baking pan, cover, and refrigerate. When you are ready to serve, uncover and reheat it in a 350 degree F oven for about 20 minutes, until hot and bubbly.

    Did I miss something here? Where is adding the can of cream of chicken soup being shown on the video? The written recipe lists 1 can cream of chicken soup.

    I have been making this for years! Add chicken for a complete meal, buttery round cracker crumbs makes a tasty topping. If you’re out of cream of chicken, you can substitute mayo. Super yummy!
