  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion and celery in hot butter until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir rice, broccoli, chicken soup, cheese spread, and evaporated milk into the onion mixture; season with salt and pepper. Transfer mixture to a baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until rice is tender and sauce is bubbly, about 30 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • I personally prefer cream of mushroom or cream of celery soup to the cream of chicken.
