Ok… I admit it. Since entering the blog world, I’ve begin to have a bit of a blog crush on a few food sites out there.  They make amazing dishes that are quite delicious and approachable to make.  One of them is Table for Two.  So when I came across this great Broccoli, Rice and Chicken Casserole recipe, I knew my little chef would be just as excited as I was to give it a try.  

www.stepstoolchef.com | Chicken Broccoli and Rice Casserole: The IngredientsWe kept the basics of the recipe the same with a few minor tweaks: 3 Chicken breast fillets (cut into cubes), 1½ cup of broccoli florets, 2 cups of Whole Milk, 2 cups of triple cheddar cheese, 1 cup of instant rice, 1 can of cream of chicken, and salt & pepper to taste.


Chicken Broccoli and Rice _ Cutting ChickenBegin by cutting the chicken into small 1″ cubes.   Make sure your little chefs are their hands before and after cutting the chicken.

SOUS CHEF MOMMY TIP:

 Wash hands, kitchen work surfaces, cutting boards and utensils thoroughly immediately after they have been in contact with raw poultry.  Hands should be washed before handling food and between handling different food items.
