  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 375ºF. In a large bowl, add the cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup and softened cream cheese. Mix until thoroughly combined. Fold in the broccoli, cheddar cheese, wild rice, chicken and black pepper. Mix to combine. Add the mixture to a greased rectangular or oval casserole dish (about 8 x 12-inches).
  • 2
    Pop open the can of biscuits. Lay the biscuits right over top the cheesy broccoli mixture. Sprinkle with more cheese. Top each biscuit with a few turns of freshly ground pepper.
  • 3
    Transfer the dish to the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, until biscuits are lightly golden brown and the center is bubbling. If the biscuits get too brown while baking, cover the dish with foil. To serve, remove one of the biscuits, exposing the casserole filling. Spoon it out into a bowl and top with a biscuit. Repeat.

Expert Tips

  • The dish can be made up to 3 days ahead of time. Assemble the broccoli mixture, cover, and refrigerate until ready to bake. When you’re ready to bake, add the biscuits. Bake as directed above.
  • To make this vegetarian, omit the chicken and use creamy vegetarian soups.
