Grandma's Cheesy Broccoli & Chicken Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Bitter Moon

This is down home comfort food at it's finest. It was the only way my grams or mom could get me to eat my broccoli while growing up. These days I use brown rice for a lower carb, healthier version. Sometimes I also use chicken thigh instead of breast because it's so much more tender. I hope you love it was much as I do.

Very good! Very easy! I used velveeta instead of cheese whiz but that's the only change I made just because it's what I had on hand. I photographed this dish but can't seem to find the picutre so I will post a picture the next time I make it.....and I think I will be making it again!! :)
