Broccoli and Chicken Casserole

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by WillCookForSmiles

One of my favourite casseroles! This is a dish that was often cooked in our house growing up. It's delicious on it's own or served over rice or pasta. It's hearty enough to be served as a main course. This recipe fills a 9X13 pan.

Anytime my entire family eats a meal without compaining I'm impressed - and this was a big hit with my kids (3, 5 and 8)! I baked the chicken after sprinkling with seasoning salt and olive oil. I also diced then parboiled 4 medium potatoes and added them on top of fresh mushrooms (mmm...cheezy potatoes!). Covered with foil to bake then uncovered, added breadcrumbs and baked for the final 10 minutes. I did have to dump some extra liquid after baking so I will probably eliinate the water next time and I may skip the shrooms since the kids aren't fans.

Directions

  1. Cook and season chicken with salt and pepper. Boil, bake, steam, or fry. I prefer baking but because of time I often fry with a little olive oil. Chop and set aside.
  2. Cook broccoli. Steam or boil - no need to season. Leave in spears or large florets.
  3. Saute onion and garlic just until slightly soft. 3-5 minutes.
  4. Mix can of cream of chicken soup with water.
  5. Layer in 13X9 pan. Chopped chicken on the bottom, followed by broccoli, onion/garlic, mushrooms, soup mixture, salt and pepper, and cheddar cheese on top. Additionally you can add toasted breadcrumbs on top of the cheese if you wish.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
