    2      packages      frozen chopped broccoli -- (10-ounce)
    2      tablespoons   butter or margarine
      1/2  cup           chopped celery

    1      can           reduced-fat cream of mushroom soup -- undiluted (1

    1      can           reduced-fat cream of chicken soup -- undiluted (1
                         -- 3/4-ounce)
    2      cups          skim milk
    1      jar           process cheese spread -- (8-ounce)
    2      cups          cooked rice
    2      cups          chopped cooked chicken
      1/2  teaspoon      pepper
 
 Cook broccoli according to package directions; drain and set aside.  Melt
 butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add celery and onion, and
 cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes or until tender.  Remove mixture from
 skillet, and set aside.
 
 Combine soups and milk in skillet; cook over medium heat, stirring often, just
 until thoroughly heated.  Add cheese spread, stirring until melted; remove
 from heat.
 
 Stir in broccoli, celery mixture, rice, chicken, and pepper.  Spoon into a
 lightly greased 8-inch square baking dish.
 
 Bake at 350ø for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
 
 Yield: 4 to 6 servings.

 Notes: This popular one-dish meal is made even better by relying on reduced-
 fat cream soups-perfect for casseroles.  Some supermarkets also carry a
 lighter version of process cheese spread; for testing, we used Cheez Whiz
 brand.
