Set the stage by preheating the oven to a cozy 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Dance with the water in a medium saucepan, bringing it to a vivacious boil. Introduce the instant rice, give it a twirl, cover, and let it rest, absorbing the warmth.
Now, in the spotlight of a 9×13 inch baking dish, elegantly combine the rice, chicken, soups, buttery delight, milk, broccoli, onion, and the star – processed cheese.
Let the ensemble bake for 30 to 35 minutes, ensuring the cheese melts gracefully, becoming one with its peers. A mid-performance stir ensures the cheese takes the lead smoothly.
