Tips For Making Cheesy Chicken Broccoli & Rice Casserole

*You can also use a 9×13-inch baking dish if you’d like.

*Use a rotisserie chicken and lightly steamed broccoli for speedy prep time. I like to keep these in my refrigerator to have on hand for quick dinner ideas.

*Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

I love to serve this meal with a nice chopped salad.  Check your grocery store’s produce section.  I’ve found some really good pre-bagged chopped salads available.  Comes with all of the toppings and even dressing.
