Chicken and Rice Casserole

1 can Campbell’s Cream of chicken soup
1 can Campbell’s Cheese or cheese and broccoli soup
For creamier version add
1 can Campbell’s cream of mushroom or celery soup
3 cups Minute rice
3 Cups chicken Broth or water (add salt to taste)
1- cups chopped broccoli (we use frozen I would steam it first if you use fresh)
lb - 1lb chopped or shredded chicken
2-3 cups Shredded cheddar cheese

Boil chicken broth/water. Add rice lower heat and cover for 5 minutes or until there is no more liquid left. Add cans of soup, Broccoli, and chicken spread into 3qt casserole pan and cover with cheese. Place in the oven for 20-30 minutes (or until cheese is melted and golden brown). To spice it up add Salsa and sour cream as a topper.

Takes about a half hour to make and feeds 4 adults comfortably. We make it for dinner and then take the leftovers for lunch its great re-heated!
