    I made this recipe tonight, and it was excellent! I liked all the ingredients in this dish. I wouldn't change a thing. My son especially liked all the cheese.

    I found it a little salty, but that would be easily solved by using a low sodium soup. I would also recommend that you drain the juice from the chicken before adding the other ingredients, as the final product was quite runny until it was chilled. I would like to try this without the velveeta as well... if anyone has tried this let me know how you did it. Serving it with a toasted garlic ciabbatta bun really topped it off.

    very good - i added a small can of coarsely chopped water chestnuts for a bit of crunch.

    This is very good. I did not pre-cook the rice. I am a garlic lover and loved the flavor. Kinda "Garlic Chicken and Rice". Mmmm Mmmm! I think next time I am going to make it without the rice and serve Over noodles. (Just to try and see)

    My whole family really liked this and they are hard to please. I did use low sodium soup and unsalted butter. I think its great. Thanks

    The family really liked this! I'm not going to pretend I made this healthy but I improved its health somewhat by using brown rice, bumping up the broccoli, using olive oil instead of butter, and leaving out the sour cream altogether. Overall, creamy and yummy. Thanks for the recipe Therese Crosby...

    Made it with Spinach instead of Broccoli and it was delicious.My Husband loves all Casseroles and I guess he will ask for this one more often Thanks for posting this

    Very tasty casserole! DD and DH both loved it. Only thing I changed was that I used a 16oz bag of frozen broccoli instead of the 10 oz box, a little more than the 2 cups cooked "regular" rice, and I reduced the amount of cheese on the top to 1 cup from 2 cups. This a keeper! Thanks!

    I would say this serves 4-6, good flavor and an easy throw together meal. I used non-instant rice, easily made while you dice/cook the chicken. I omitted the shredded cheese topping, opting for bread crumbs mixed with a small amount of margarine, also I used American cheese slices in place of the Velveeta, as its what I usually have on hand

    Great Recipe. I have made it several times with variations, depending on what I have on hand. It is always great!! Yogurt works well in place of sour cream and I really like adding fresh spinach instead of broccoli. Thanks for posting!!!
