I’ve made this a few times and it’s wonderful. I do make a few changes just to fit our tastes. I use boneless, skinless thighs, and I rarely have celery on hand so I’ll use chopped onion instead. I also double the amount for my family of 4 and it feeds us plus leftovers. I like to brown the thighs first in a sauté pan, remove them to the baking dish with the broccoli, and then sauté the onion and mushrooms for a couple minutes, just enough to give them some color. I then deglaze the pan with the stock and scrape up all the yummy chicken bits to add more flavor. I then add all the other ingredients, including the rice to the sauté pan only because it gets everything mixed and coated easily. Then I pour this over the thighs and bake, covered for an hour.
