  2. In a medium skillet with oil, brown chicken seasoned with salt and pepper. Does not have to be completely cooked. Will finish cooking in the oven.

    Now, add the chicken and broccoli.


    Pour into prepared baking pan. Sprinkle remaining cheese evenly over casserole.
  4. In a small bowl; mix the crumbs, seasonings and butter well; set aside.
  5. Cover casserole with foil and bake 40 - 45 minutes.

    Remove foil. Sprinkle crumbs atop the casserole.

    Continue baking till golden brown and bubbling. Check for rice tenderness.

    If still tough remain baking till tender. Check the center of casserole, as the edges bake sooner than the center.
