This recipe is from Rachel, my MIL. Time to make does not include cooking the chicken.

I make a similar chicken recipe in the microwave and this was even better. I loved the water chestnuts for the extra crunch and texture. Used two pouches of Tyson chicken, frozen broccoli, velveeta cheese and brown rice. The hot sauce or cayenne pepper I did not add but did sprinkle some black pepper, lemon pepper, and a bit of celery seed. Very easy to make and very tasty! Thank you janem!
