    Recipe I got several years ago from Quick Cooking. One of my DH favorite dishes. He loves anything with chicken, cheese and rice! Very flavorful comfort food for those cold winter days.

      Lovely recipe that my whole family enjoys. Not the fastest to put together but a lot of the work can be done in advance and this is a great way to use leftovers hanging around in the fridge. I've made one change. I add a layer of chopped fresh broccoli over the rice before I pour on the cheesy chicken mix. The 10-15 mins in the oven is plenty to soften it up a bit, but it isn't soggy or limp by any means. Hubby likes to add tabasco to his serving.

      Overall, I liked this recipe. I used less butter overall - about half - and slightly less velveeta (about 8 ounces) - I had some leftover roasted chicken - I used a 9x13 and layered my rice, the chicken (I sprinkled it with garlic, salt, pepper, paprika) and then the cheese sauce over all of this. I used a combo of ritz/club crackers as that is what I had on hand (and probably only about a cup). It was really good!! I liked it. It would be excellent with broccoli in it as well!!

      Made half a recipe, used sharp cheddar rather than the Velveeta. So good. I added broccoli and cooked it for 18 min. as I made it ahead of time.
