Chicken Broccoli Bacon Casserole

2 Large Uncooked Chicken breast cut into 1 inch cubes( about 2 ½ Cups)

2 Cups chopped Broccoli

2 Cups additive free freshly grated Cheddar Cheese

1 – 18 oz. Can Gluten Free Cream of Mushroom soup ( I used Progresso)

1 – 6oz. jar of additive free sliced Mushrooms

1 – 14.5 oz. can of 100% Chicken Broth ( I used Swanson)

1 Teaspoon Salt

1 large green Garden onion chopped

2 Cups Brown Minute Rice

8 – 10 slices of cooked Bacon, chopped or crumbled (reserve about ¼ cup for garnish)

Preheat oven to 375* F.

In large mixing bowl add all ingredients. Mix and pour into a 9×13 inch baking pan, spreading out evenly. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until bubbling and starting to brown on top. Chicken should be cooked through. Top with remaining bacon and serve.
