Expert Tips

To heat the chicken broth, measure it into a 2-cup microwavable measuring cup and microwave on High 2 minutes 30 seconds to 3 minutes or until almost boiling.

The Alfredo sauce provides a creamy, rich flavor to this casserole; the reduced-fat variety helps trim the fat. The brown rice adds extra fiber.
