4 Cups Milk
4 TBS Butter
3 Cups Crushed Keebler Club Crackers with following stirred in to the crushed crackers
1 tsp. Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Onion Powder, 1 tsp Poultry Seasonings, 1 TBS Dried Parsley Flakes.
Cook Rice according to package ( I use Uncle Bens), & place cooked rice in the bottom of a large deep pan 10x15 preferred, spread chopped onion over the rice evenly. Now spread out the chicken. Next layer on the Broccoli. Now in a deep sauce pan melt the butter then whisk in the flour. Now slowly whisk in the milk & whisk & cook until thick & bubbling. Now stir in the Velveeta & 2 cups of the Cheddar Cheese. Cook until smooth & melted over a low heat. Now pour sauce over the casserole EVENLY! Cover with foil & bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour. Meanwhile crush up those crackers & add the seasonings! Once casserole has baked 1 hour remove from the oven & sprinkle 2 cups of the Cheddar Cheese over the top. Next spread on the crushed crackers EVENLY! Return to the oven & bake another 1/2 hour! SERVE! Watch so the crackers on top do not get to brown, if starting to brown to much cover back up with the foil! ENJOY this is WONDERFUL!
