Creamy chicken rice

This is a super easy side dish which takes about 10 minutes to make... with everybody nowadays pressed for time who doesn't like that....  this dish is super versatile as well. You can add cooked chicken & whatever cooked veggies leftover from last nights dinner and add to the mix and make it a super quick main dish.... I have added cooked chicken & broccoli, also mixed veggies to this, and it is wonderful as well.. add whatever you have (mushrooms are another good example).  I have also substituted cream of broccoli soup and also cream of mushroom soup instead of the cream of chicken and it turned out fabulous as well :)  I serve this with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top but it is optional.. Enjoy
