uncovered and rice covered at 350? for 30 minutes (cook chicken longer if not done).
Once chicken has cooled, cut into bite-size pieces. Chop broccoli into bite-size
pieces, and cook in boiling water for 6 minutes (the recipe says to add 1 slice of
onion, but we never do this).

broccoli, then rice in casserole dish. Pour cheese sauce over entire dish.
Add more Parmesan cheese on top if desired (we donít usually do this). Bake
