Trisha Yearwood's Chicken Broccoli Casserole

Have you seen Trisha Yearwood on the Food Network?  She's got an awesome southern style of cooking! Love most of her recipes . . . 

This recipe has so many of my favorite things for a comfort food meal, starting with cream of chicken soup and I can never resist a chicken and rice meal! One thing that is very interesting to me is the combination of sour cream and mayonnaise.

What an awesome meal with some hot biscuits!

Makes 10 servings
Work: 20 minutes
Total: 1 hour


    • Vegetable cooking spray, for dish
    • 2 cups cooked rice

    • 1 can (10 oz.) condensed cream of chicken soup
    • 3 cups (10 oz.) shredded cheddar
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
    • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
    • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
    • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper

I'd probably make this without the mayo.

First time I make this, I'm going to follow the recipe and then tweak it the second time around. My husband and I were talking about the combination of mayo and sour cream . . . not sure about it!
