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!

Yummy. A few changes (mainly quantity) were made. I used 1/2 cup of extra chicken and 2 ounces extra of medium cheddar cheese (shredded entire block). I also had two 8 oz cans of "cream of chicken and mushroom soup" so I used them instead. A frozen 12 oz bag of Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers Chopped Broccoli was perfect for this recipe. The pieces were small enough that they provided adequate coverage. The entire family enjoyed this (even my hubby who usually dislikes broccoli).

I made this last night with leftover chicken and rice and it was a big hit and so easy! I will make this again and again.

Made this last night, honestly thought it looked like it was gonna be dry but it was amazing!! I halved the recipe too because it was just my friend and I, but I wish I had made more so I would have it for lunch all week because we destroyed it. So good. I left out the cream of mushroom. I cooked one chicken breast in my nuwave, I used fresh broccoli which I steamed and Lundberg white basmati rice (my fav!! Best rice ever).... Definitely a keeper recipe! Much better than those velveeta casseroles! Thanks

I really like this recipe. I did a couple things different though. I mixed the cheese sauce, chicken, broccoli and rice all together and added a teaspoon of montreal chicken seasoning and a litte pepper and then put in the casserole dish. Came out wonderful.

My family LOVED this dish! I made the recipe as written. In more detail, I used one Costco rotisserie chicken, one 24 ounce can of cream of chicken soup and added about 1/2 a can of milk to the soup/onion/cheese mixture. You do not need to add any salt if using a regular (not low sodium) soup. Like others have said, make sure to use fresh broccoli, cook in boiling water for about 2 min then blanch by straining then immediately pouring into ice water. The pop of bright green really makes the dish! Finish by sprinkling sharp cheddar cheese on top, cover with foil for 20 min, then for the last 15 min turn the heat up to 415 degrees (that will brown the cheese) and cook. I will make again!

Simple and delicious! I roasted a chicken instead of using canned (personal preference), only had jasmine rice on hand, and I added about 1/2 cup of julienned red bell peppers while sautéing the onions & it was fantastic. My 12 year old who is a picky eater loved it and licked his plate! This is a new family favorite!

This was amazing! Made a few changes though.. used fresh broccoli and cooked it slightly in microwave before adding it to casserole. Also didn't put rice in casserole.. just made rice in rice cooker and put the chicken/sauce/broccoli over the rice. Used chicken breast cut in small pieces and sauteed before putting it in the sauce. Also added pepper, paprika. Yummy!! My hubby Loved It!
