In a large bowl, combine broccoli, cream of chicken, 1 cup of cheese, rice and milk.

Step 4

Stir and mix everything until combined. Add your chicken.

Step 5

In the casserole dish, pour everything in. Add the other half cup of cheese on top.

Step 6

In a ziploc bag, put the Ritz crackers in the bag, seal it and crush them up. Add your melted butter and mix it up until they start to bind a little.

Step 7

Take the Ritz mixture and sprinkle on top covering the entire mixture.

Step 8

Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the rice is completely cooked and casserole is bubbling.

Let sit for about 5 minutes then serve and enjoy!
