    Divaconviva's Note:

    I call this "cheap" because our supermarket has sales where you buy one package of chicken, you get one free! Sometimes I use a blend of brown rices, including japonica and wehani, but here I used a brown and wild-rice blend. You may have to adjust the cooking times a bit - they're approximate. We thought this was a nice stick-to-your ribs meal!

      Hi, Divaconviva! I had printed out a batch of cheese/chicken casseroles and my wife picked this one from the bunch -- I'm glad she did! The sherry and the nutmeg gave the dish just a slight (very nice!) Morroccan ambiance, separating this casserole from all the others and making it anything but boring. The true test results were reflected when my wife made a special point to tell me to make it again soon -- that doesn't happen very often as we usually have very differing tastes on the topic of supper. I hope others are paying attention here because this recipe is a real crowd-pleaser. I did bake it for a few extra minutes before topping it with the cheese (I used the Monterey Jack since the cheddar is in the soup) as I may have added a little more fluid than the recipe called for. But that's the beauty of the recipe... you can make it as thick as you like by this method. The chicken was very tender and the blend of flavors was perfect. Thanks for posting this great one-dish meal! pat

      How could something so easy taste so good? I used white sticky rice instead of brown rice, peas and carrots instead of broccoli, doubled the garlic, and I seasoned the chicken with peppered bacon salt. Savory and rich!

      This is a great recipe! I needed something simple and savoury that my toddler would eat (and may I add, a fussy toddler!) The chicken bake did the trick! I substituted apple juice for the sherry, and used peas and corn instead of broccoli. I also used jasmine rice. Delicious!
