I got this off of Southern U.S. Cuisine. We love it! I have made a lower fat version of it using lite cheddar, lite sour cream and margarine without the taste being compromised at all. DH loves this casserole and always goes back for seconds!

This was very good. Easy to put together and tasty. I also mixed everything together. I sauted an onion and threw that into the mix with broccoli, chicken and rice. I also upped the rice to 2 cups. I used a 1 pound bag of broccoli florets and stems. Rather than use the milk, flour and butter I used a can of 98% FF Cream of Chicken soup and just mixed that with the chicken and rice mixture. Topped it off with sour cream and then cheese. Baked uncovered the entire time (about 30 minutes). This seems to freeze well also. Good comfort food without all the guilt. Thanks for posting.

This was quite good and easy enough for my son to pull together while I was away. The whole family enjoyed it (though my son thought it was a bit tangy with the sour cream and lemon juice - DH thought it was perfect). Thanks for posting!

This was good. We enjoyed the tangy cream layer with the rest of the ingredients. I did double the amount of rice in order to have enough to cover the chicken layer.
