Creamy mild curry-flavored rice with chunks of tender chicken,  florets of broccoli and lots of cheddar. A family favorite casserole recipe perfect for any weeknight.


  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cups long grain brown rice
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp yellow curry powder
  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1 pound frozen broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups grated cheddar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a microwave safe dish, stir together the onion, butter, rice and 1/2 cup broth.
  2. Microwave for 4 minutes, stirring every 90 seconds.
  3. Transfer to a greased slow cooker.
  4. Stir in the remaining 3 cups of broth and the garlic powder, salt and curry powder. Nestle the chicken into the slow cooker.
  5. Cover and cook on HIGH for about 3 hours.  (mine took exactly 3 hours…yours may take more or less depending on your slow cooker)
  6. Pour broccoli into a colander and run hot water over it until it is heated through. Shake off excess water. Stir in the broccoli. Stir and break up chicken with a spoon. Stir in the sour cream and cheddar. Salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve immediately (this tastes best served right away, it doesn’t hold up very well on the warm setting).
