  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Stir the broccoli florets, cream of chicken soup, and 1 tablespoon softened butter together in a 9x13-baking dish until the broccoli is coated with the soup. Pack lightly to form a flat surface. Layer about half the slices of processed cheese food atop the broccoli mixture.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbling, about 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the dish from the oven; stir to blend the melted cheese into the broccoli mixture. Top with the remaining processed cheese food. Top with the crushed buttery round crackers.
  5. Return dish to oven and bake until the added cheese begins to melt, about 15 minutes more. Allow the casserole to cool and thicken slightly before serving, at least 15 minutes.

This recipe is really good except I only used half of the cheese it suggested. If I had used the suggested amount it would have been way too much.

My kids, nor myself eat broccoli but my cousin brought this over and it was a hit. Not one bite left. I made it last night and once again, not one bite left. To the reader asking about adding...

It seemed simple and easy enough to try so I did. I didn't have any cream of chicken on hand so substituting cream of celery. Still in the over, will let you know how it turns out.
