Creamy Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli,Rice, & Cheddar Bake

This is not just an easy dinner to pull off on a busy weeknight, but I have doubled it and used it for a home fellowship group for well over 10 people. The crispy buttery goodness of this meal also qualifies it as a comfort food!

I love to stock up on the 12.5 ounce cans of chunk chicken. Walmart’s Great Value brand or Costco’s Kirkland brand are my favorites.
