Chicken broccoli hot dish

I made one of my childhood favorites the other night at a friends house. It was really good and I plan on making it again very soon. Danielle was also hanging out with us so I made a separate veggie hot dish for her.

Ingredients
About 3 breast of chicken, diced
2- 2 1/2 cups of dry rice- cooked
About one bag of frozen broccoli
2 cans of cream soup (mushroom, chicken, celery)
Shredded cheeses

Directions

1. Bake chicken, cut into small pieces

2. Cook rice, my mom says 11min is the perfect time to cook rice on the stove (not min rice)

3. Mix everything together in a baking dish, leave a potion of cheese to sprinkle in top.

4. Bake until the broccoli is hot. About 30min.
