I really modified this, but it’s a good starter recipe. I made a complete meal by adding 3 cups of cooked instant rice and 1lb. of cubed cooked chicken. I did add 2 cups extra sharp cheddar and garlic powder, and extra salt and pepper. I added some onions too. I also used Neufchatel cheese instead of Cream Cheese because I had some. Neufchatel is almost just like cream cheese and is sold in most supermarkets right along side of the cream cheese. It’s usually marketed as “1/3 Less Fat THAN Cream Cheese”. It’s the same price as the cream cheese and the same shape box. The Neufchatel identifying word is usually in little letters on the box. I have another broccoli, rice, chicken, casserole recipe that I prefer, that uses Velveeta and sharp cheddar. That recipe uses F. F. Onions for topping instead of the crackers. But I had the stuff for this version and it wasn’t half bad, but I like the other recipe better. This was better the next day. The 2 cups of milk seemed excessive. I can’t imagine how much sauce this would have made had I not added all the extras that I did!
