    My Private Note



    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


    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.

      Great!!!!! I like that this broccoli casserole uses real cheese instead of the processed cheese whiz. It was a great way to use up some extra cheese that I had so mine had cheddar plus a little aged gruyere in there which was yummy!!! I also used real chicken instead of the canned because I had 3 chicken legs to use up which was the exact right amount to make 5 ounces! I used 16 ounces of broccoli instead of the ten and it all still fit into the 2 quart casserole dish. Love all the other veggies in this too and the soups and evaporated milk just make it great and creamy good!! I left out the salt because I always eliminate salt when I am cooking with canned soups (they have enough as it is!!) Thanks for posting!! Will make again!!

      This is easy, cheesy and delicious. I used one cream of chicken and one cream of celery and made my own evaporated milk with Evaporated Milk. I also used a can of tuna in place of the chicken and fresh broccoli instead of frozen. Thanks for sharing!

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