One of my favorite dishes to make when my family is coming over is a Cheesy Broccoli and Chicken Casserole with Rice; it takes under 30 minutes to make and is so full of flavor!
There’s really nothing quite like the creamy taste of Velveeta block cheese in a casserole, am I right?

You’ll want to let the cheesy broccoli and chicken casserole with rice set for a while to cool down before serving – that liquid gold gets super hot in the oven!
So many of my favorite recipes include the liquid gold of Velveeta, but I think this one is really my favorite.
Whenever I make it, I think of family dinners, conversation and happiness. I think I’ve made it for our family’s annual progressive Christmas dinner twice now, that’s how much everyone loves it – especially the little ones!
Velveeta asked me if I knew any Liquid Gold Diggers. I’ll know more soon once they taste these dishes! Why? Because Liquid Gold Diggers love the Liquid Gold of Velveeta.
