Very yummy and healthy recipe, Member MsAmarG

I had broccoli in the fridge kicking around and some boneless skinless thicken thighs and came across this recipe. I didn't have sour cream but used Greek Style plain yogurt and it worked fantastic. Instead of plain white rice I used broccoli and cheddar rice that I had cooked from a package and it just added an extra kick. I also added a bit of garlic to the sauce. I love it when I can take an easy basic recipe like this and make variations to suit us and what we have at home already. Im always looking for ways to get my 2 and half year old to eat veggies and broccoli is a good one. It doesn't look that appetizing though in all the layers. I kind of expected it to blend more but it tastes fine.Thanks.
