    KPD's Note:

    This is my favorite broccoli rice casserole...maybe it's because it's so darn creamy and cheesy I don't even notice the broccoli! :) Enjoy!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 10 ounces frozen chopped broccoli, microwaved about 6 minutes to thaw
    • 2 cups cooked rice
    • 2 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
    • 2 (10 1/2 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
    • 1 (5 ounce) can Carnation Evaporated Milk
    • 1 onion, diced
    • 1/2 cup celery, diced
    • 1 (5 ounce) can premium chunk chicken (I sometimes use 2 or the large can when I'm treating this as a one-dish meal)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
    • 2 tablespoons butter

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Saute onions and celery in butter until soft. Add chicken, salt, and pepper. Saute a minute or so to marry flavors.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, combine soups, milk, rice, broccoli, onion/chicken mixture. Fold in 2 cups cheese.
    3. 3
      Pour into a greased 2 quart casserole dish. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese (I sometimes use more -- it's terrible, I know! ;).
    4. 4
      Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes uncovered.

      Love it! I used fresh boneless skinless chicken breast that I cut up and cooked instead of the canned chicken. DELICIOUS :-)

      I had everything but the soup (I know no one should every be out of cream of mushroom soup!). As a substitute I made a basic white sauce and flavored it with worchestershire, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. I also omitted the celery as I am not a fan, eliminated the chicken and used fresh broccoli. It was fantastic. I will try it again with the soup, but I think I might stick to my original variation.
