    LifeAfter40's Note:

    3/18/13. I've updated this recipe to include alternate choices for the canned chicken the original recipe called for. Lately, I've been using store bought rotisserie chicken. I've seen a lot of recipes for broccoli, cheese and rice casseroles. However, this takes it from a side dish to a main meal casserole. It fills up the sink with dirty dishes, but that is the only draw back. You can make umpteen variations to customize the taste to your liking. I will offer substitution possibilities in the instructions.

      This turned out really great. I did half a recipe in an 8x8 pan and only used the cream of chicken soup. I also added a slice of american cheese in with the cheddar, and used cubed cooked chicken breast as well as fresh broccoli (only partially cook the broccoli to avoid it getting soggy). My husband liked it and he doesn't usually like "creamy" things. Great comfort food!

      We love this dish! I made a few changes to the recipe though. <br/><br/>I always use fresh baked chicken instead of canned chicken. Neither of us like Cream of Mushroom soup so I use Creamy Broccoli Soup instead. We both LOVE cheese and prefer things a little more soupy so I actually use 12 oz of both soups and double the cheese. I top it with Cayenne, Garlic Powder, Seasoning Salt and Black Pepper. <br/><br/>It freezes really well too! I think because it is a little more soupy it doesn't dry out when you reheat it.
