Chicken and Rice Casserole

I'm not really very good at just throwing stuff together so when this turned out SO good I decided I'd better write it down so maybe I could make it again sometime.  Oh!  And my husband is NOT into casseroles so please don't tell him that is what this is LOL... he had me put his serving in a tortilla shell and put sour cream on it!

I'm sorry I don't have a picture, this is the first recipe I've ever made on my own and written down, I had no idea it would taste good.  The next time I make it I will definitely get a picture and come back and edit this post.

So... here we go!

1 cup uncooked wild rice cooked according to directions on package
2-3 chicken breasts cooked and cubed
(I used 6 tenderloins, cooked in about 1/2 tbsp butter with Weber Roasted Garlic and Herb Seasoning)
1 can cream or broccoli
1 block of cream cheese
1/2 red bell pepper
Shredded Cheese

I cooked up my rice according to the directions on the package.  While the rice was cooking I cooked up my chicken tenders and cubed them up.  Once the chicken was done cooking I added the diced red pepper and cream cheese so it could start melting in.  Once the cream cheese was melted in I added the rice and can of cream of broccoli and stirred until well combined.  Next I added everything to a glass baking dish and covered it in shredded cheese (probably about 2 cups, I didn't measure).  Bake at 350° for 15 minutes.
