minutes until tender crisp. Drain and cool.
Saute chopped onion, celery and green pepper in 3 tablespoons
margarine until vegetables are slightly transparent. Add mushrooms
and cook a few minutes longer. Reduce heat too low. Add cream
cheese and cook until melted. Add broth to thin sauce to desired
consistency (about 1 cup). Add salt and pepper to taste.
Mix chicken, broccoli and water chestnuts with cream cheese
vegetable sauce. Turn into a 9x13 inch buttered casserole. Top
with bread crumbs and dot with remaining 3 tablespoons margarine.
Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.
