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.

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.

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.

Made this for dinner a couple weeks ago and we liked it. DH thought it was a bit bland so will add more garlic next time and probably cook the onions a bit more. It was easy to put together and was very filling. It's a keeper! Made for Spring PAC 2009

This was a hit at dinner last night! I did double the cheddar cheese, and used seasoning salt vs plain salt. I used fresh mushrooms which led to a lot of juice in the bottom of the casserole but that was ok as we served this over rice and it was nice to have a little excess moisture. I am so happy I have leftovers for lunch today. Thanks for sharing, I will definitely make this again. *Made for Spring PAC 2009*
