Heat the oven to 375°F. While the oven is heating, stir the soup, water, rice and broccoli in an 11x8x2-inch baking dish. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken on the rice mixture. Sprinkle the chicken with the paprika. Cover the baking dish.
Bake for 45 minutes or until the chicken is done and the rice is tender. Season to taste before serving.
Amazing easy meal!
This recipe is great! It's so simple to put together and is perfect! As long as you use the correct size pan and cover the dish while baking there shouldn't be any issues with rice needing more time to cook. I usually use season salt on the chicken instead of paprika and a little salt and pepper on the rice and I throw frozen mixed veggies instead of broccoli. So good!
LOVE this recipe!
I absolutely love this recipe and how easy it is to make! But I alternate it a little bit. Instead of cream of broccoli, I use cream of mushroom and instead of water, I use chicken broth. I also add fresh squeezed lemon juice to the soup/rice mixture. Then I season the chicken with a wet rub that consists of paprika, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, chili powder, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Comes out amazing!
Actually really hood
I made this and added a chicken boullion cube to the water and soup mixture as well as some cubes of Colby jack cheese to the rice and then topped with cheddar cheese. I also added garlic powder to the chicken breast too It was delicious!
This recipe was not tested
I followed the directions explicitly. The rice was raw. The broccoli was under done and the chicken was rubbery and overcooked. It would be better to prepare each ingredient separately and combine them at the end. The taste is good.

This is why you ABSOLUTELY MUST cover the dish while it cooks. I suggest SECURELY covering the dish with aluminum foil. If the rice is thereby steamed, the food comes out cooked properly & is very tasty. Seasoning? I suggest sage, or if you're adventurous, chili pepper. If the dish is NOT covered properly while cooking, the water boils away & the rice remains hard in a sticky mass.
