Chicken, Broccoli Casserole

I threw this together tonight and we liked it so well I thought I'd copy the recipe down.  This works great if you have some leftover steamed broccoli and leftover chicken.  The quality of the chicken broth makes all the difference.  If your chicken broth does not contain sodium, you will want to add some.

1 cup basmati rice, rinsed
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cups chicken broth - I used water with a heaping tablespoon of Better Than Bouillon
1 cup finely chopped cooked broccoli
3 tablespoons freshly shredded parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1. Saute rice and onion in butter till onion is translucent.  Make sure rice does not get too brown.
2. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or till rice is just tender. Keep lid covered till rice is done.
3. Turn off heat and mix in the cheese, broccoli and chicken.

You can either eat this immediately or heat in the oven or microwave.  You may want to add a bit more liquid if you do this.
