I saw a recipe for a similar casserole at 3 Boys and a Dog. I changed some of the ingredients and preparation methods and it was delicious. There are several steps to this, but you can do some of them ahead. When we sat down to dinner my 4 year old said, "Mommy I don't think I'm going to like this." Then he said, "Yum!" I asked, "Do you like it?" and he answered, "I love it!"
Chicken, Rice and Broccoli Casserole
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast tenderloins or 2 chicken breasts
½ cup diced onion
½ cup diced celery
1 T. butter
2 crowns fresh broccoli
1 can cream of chicken soup
3 cups cooked rice (use broth leftover from cooking the chicken to prepare the rice)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1. Put chicken in a crock pot and cover with enough water that you will have a nice broth to make the rice later. Cook on low about 8 hours.
2. Saute onion and celery in butter until tender and the onion has caramelized.
3. Cut up broccoli crowns and steam until tender.
4. Shred chicken with two forks. Strain the broth and measure the amount needed to make your rice.
5. Make rice according to package directions using the leftover chicken broth in place of the water.
6. Combine chicken, onion and celery, steamed broccoli, cream of chicken soup, cooked rice and 1 cup shredded cheese. Put into a large greased casserole and top with remaining 1 cup of cheese.
7. Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbly, about 10 minutes.

When I quit teaching and we went to one income, I did not renew any of our subscriptions. I was so excited to see this deal and just re-subscribed.

Jockey and Purex Crystals teamed up to offer this great giveaway. I received a Jockey Tech Terry sports bra featuring moisture wicking technology and a bottle of Purex Crystals Tropical Splash fabric softener for review. One lucky reader will also win these.
The sports bra I received is actually a little tight on me which might be due to the fact that I am currently nursing. I usually wear a S (4/6) and I received a M size sports bra. I would be more comfortable in a L so I would advise the winner and anyone interested in purchasing this bra from Jockey to order a size up. It is a well made bra and I think it is actually attractive. Mine is black, but I do not know what color the winner will receive. Jockey is offering a 20% off coupon. Below are the stats for this sports bra.
One reader will also win a bottle of Purex Crystals with which to wash her new sports bra. Most fabric softeners have oils that can prevent the wicking process of performance sportswear. Purex Crystals do not contain oil, so it can safely be used on all laundry including:
One lucky reader will win both a Jockey sports bra and a bottle of Purex Crystals.

It is 9 degrees here tonight so I made a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup for dinner. My Mom makes the best chicken noodle soup - the old fashioned way with a whole chicken. I prefer this simpler recipe that I have been perfecting for some time. I use the chicken base to help give it the flavor that it would otherwise be lacking since I am not making a true homemade broth from a whole chicken. The cajun seasoning is not overly spicy and adds another depth to the flavor that is just plain good.
Chicken Noodle Soup
1 onion diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1 stalk celery diced
2 T. butter
14 C. water
10 t. chicken base or bouillon
1 lb. boneless chicken
1 t. salt
1 t. Cajun seasoning
1 C. sliced carrots
1 C. frozen peas
12 oz. Amish home-style egg noodles
1. In a large pot, sauté onion, garlic and celery in butter until tender and caramelized.
2. Add water, chicken base, chicken, salt and Cajun seasoning. Cook on low for about an hour or until chicken is cooked.
3. Remove chicken from the pot and shred/chop it with a knife and a fork. Return the chicken to the pot. Add sliced carrots and peas and bring pot to a boil.
4. Add noodles and continue to boil uncovered 20-28 minutes or until noodles are cooked.
