    Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease 10-inch round baking dish with olive oil; set aside.
  • 2
    In 10-inch skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook until tender and translucent, stirring occasionally. Add flour; stir to make a roux. Cook roux 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly golden. Gradually beat in broth with whisk, followed by milk, and simmer until slightly thickened into a gravy.

    In large bowl, mix chicken, gravy, ham, rice and 1 cup of the cheese. Spread evenly in baking dish.

    In another bowl, mix bread crumbs and butter to coat well. Add remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Top casserole with bread crumb mixture; bake about 20 minutes or until top is crisp and golden and casserole is bubbling.

  • Freshly cooked rice or leftover rice work well in this dish.
  • You can use any cheese you like for this--Swiss is the classic choice, but Cheddar or Jack are also great!
  • Unseasoned bread crumbs also work for this dish.
