Curry Chicken and Rice Casserole


I love meals that are all in one dish.  This recipe is easy to make, and loads of flavor if you like curry.  Here is what you will need~

  • 1 cup of rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup of mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons curry
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 cups of left over chicken
  • 2 cups of broccoli
  • grated cheese
  1. Cook rice in the water following the directions for the rice you use.  
  2. Saute onion in a bit of oil.  
  3. Add the broccoli and chicken.
  4. Stir together the soup, mayo and curry powder.
  5. Add the soup mixture with the rice, chicken and broccoli
  6. Put into a greased casserole dish.
  7. Cover with desired amount of cheese, I use old cheddar.
  8. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes,covered til heated through and cheese bubbles. (uncover for the last 10 minutes or so)
Serve with crisp fresh salad.  Serves 4-6.  this recipe doubles or triples very well, and is great for potlucks.

  1. If you don't like curry I'm pretty sure you can make with without and end up having my mom's delicious broccoli rice casserole, so either way you've got a winner.

  2. I make this and LOVE it. Only difference is cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom and we add crushed Ritz crackers on top. One of my favorite meals!!

  6. Is this the curry powder found in the Tone's (or another brand) spice rack in almost all grocery stores? Thank you.

  9. wow...looks yummy but the calorie count must be out of this world! low fat sour cream would do the same as the mayo. And what about fresh or dried mushrooms and broth instead of the canned soup mix. It may be fast, but lots more sodium than I want.

    1. I tried making the healthier version that Anonymous suggested. I was a bit disappointed. Not enough flavor.
      I wonder if the low fat mayonnaise and cream of mushroom soup would taste good in this recipe. Has anybody tried that?

    2. Yes I have used the low fat version with no compromise to the flavor. To the First anonymous, I think your idea sounds very good. I actually make a version of that but call it Rice Pilaf.

  14. I made this for dinner tonight, and it was a winner! I was confused about the water and rice amounts, so followed my box amounts of equal amounts, and it worked fine.
    Hubby said 1 more tablespoon of curry would make it perfection.
    Thank you for a delicious new menu to add to our dinner.

  15. I hate to be a wet blanket, but I just cannot take the taste of curry for some reason. Would anyone have a suggestion on a spice to replace the curry? Thank you, and it really is a beautiful recipe!

  16. You aren't being a wet blanket. If you don't like curry, then you don't like curry, no biggie. What do you like? Do you like Italian seasonings, or just Thyme perhaps some sage or poultry seasoning. Choose flavors you like, then add that.
