Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400° F. Lightly spray an 11x8" baking pan with cooking spray.

Place chicken, rice, and broccoli in a large mixing bowl.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the soup, milk, sour cream, garlic salt, and salt and pepper; heat just until somewhat hot but not boiling. Remove from heat and stir in 1 cup of shredded cheese until melted.

Combine soup mixture with the ingredients in the mixing bowl. Spoon mixture into the baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Reduce oven heat to 350°. Remove foil then continue to bake until for another 10-15 minutes. Turn off the oven.

Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top of casserole and return to oven to melt the cheese. Let stand about 5 minutes before serving.
