Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole

Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole 
I assembled this dinner in a hurry and it turned out pretty good.  This could also be called I-forgot-to-crock-the-chicken-casserole.  It's the classic chicken and rice casserole with broccoli and plenty of rice for My Heart's Desire. It's very, very easy.

Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole Ingredients:
6 chicken thighs (of course you could use breasts or a combination)
1 can cream of chicken or mushroom soup
1 1/2 cups long grain rice
2 cups water
3 cups frozen chopped broccoli
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 t paprika, divided
1/4 t black pepper
1/2 t garlic salt

Spray a glass baking dish with Pam.  Combine the soup, rice, water, broccoli, onion, half the paprika, and pepper in the pan.  Give it a good stir.  Season the chicken with the other half of the paprika, garlic salt, and a little more pepper. Place the chicken on top.

Bake at 375* for an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes or until the chicken has reached 165*.  My oven is not awesome so it may take less time in yours.  Let it stand for 10 minutes or so.  This made dinner for us for two nights and a lunch or two.
