Chicken Rice and Broccoli Casserole

This is the dish that finally got my 7 year old to eat rice! Molly L O V E S broccoli, I mean LOVES broccoli!! She'll eat it any way you make it broiled, boiled, baked, fried, sauteed, steamed, etc. etc. etc. but she use to HATE rice just as much as she loved broccoli. Rice and potatoes are two things she just flat out refused to eat until about 8 months ago. 

Super easy recipe that you probably have all the ingredients for in your kitchen right now. Feel free to add more chicken. I'm a frugal girl so I like to stretch my meat. This is a great bake and take for potlucks or bringing a meal to someone. Enjoy!

Chicken, Rice and Broccoli Casserole

1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded
2 boxes Zatarain's Rice Pilaf or Rice a Roni Chicken
8 oz. Velveeta cheese, sliced or you can use several cheese slices (whatever you have on hand EXCEPT shredded cheese! It just doesn't cook the same)
1/2 head fresh broccoli or 1 bag frozen broccoli florets
1 can cream of chicken soup(I'll be posting the homemade cream soups recipe soon!)
1 1/2 cans full of milk or water

Cook Rice and broccoli according to directions. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a well greased 13 x 9 pan you are going to layer the cooked rice mix, then the chicken and the broccoli. Mix together the soup and milk or water. Pour over top of everything and then top with sliced cheese. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until cheese is good and melted.
