Chicken and Brown Rice with Cheese Sauce Recipe

Updated on April 13, 2012

Tastes Like Homemade Mac and Cheese but with Brown Rice and Chicken


A revised Chicken and Rice Recipe with Creamy Cheese

A long day at work, no desire to go to the grocery store and a lack of ingredients is how I came up with this dish. We had made a decision to use up the chicken breasts that we had in the fridge and make the basic chicken and rice, a family favorite. White rice with chicken smothered in cream of chicken soup. Very simple, extremely quick and we always had the rice and soup in the pantry. After a very long and tiring day at work, both of us starving and craving the chicken and rice, we found out the the two things we always have in our house were definitely not in our house. Ah shoot, we decided not to go grocery shopping in the cold rain this weekend. Ok, well I was craving it so I was determined to make something that would taste just as good. What we found out is that it tastes even better!

Brown Rice has health benefits that white rice does not

What you will need:


2 Chicken Breasts

2 Cups of Brown Rice

3 Cups Chicken Broth

1 Tablespoon of Seasoned Salt

1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic

3 Tablespoons Butter

5 Tablespoons Flour

2 Cups Milk

1 Cup Shredded Cheese (I used Colby Jack and Monterrey Jack mix)

½ Cup Bread Crumbs

How you make it:


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees

  2. Mix the brown rice with the seasoned salt and minced garlic (I used a pie dish to bake this)

  3. Add (2) Cups of the Chicken Broth and mix together

  4. Lay the two chicken breasts on the top of the rice mixture and set aside

  5. Make a roux with the butter and the flour

  6. Add the milk and continue whisking until it begins to thicken

  7. Add the last cup of chicken broth slowly while still whisking over low heat

  8. When the mixture is as about thick as a cream of chicken soup, add the shredded cheese

  9. Continue stirring over low heat until the cheese is completely melted and remove from heat

  10. Pour the mixture over the chicken covering the whole top of the pie pan

  11. Top with the bread crumbs

  12. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly and the cheese mixture brown

  13. Enjoy!
