Cheesy Broccoli Bacon Chicken Casserole

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Marla Swoffer

I created this dish to use the broccoli I had bought for the first time in my life (used to hate the stuff!) and to fit my parents' low carb diet. The fastest way to pre-cook the broccoli, chicken and bacon is by using a combination of the microwave and stovetop. I cooked the bacon and chicken in the microwave--separately--and I steamed the broccoli--but you could also nuke the broccoli and saute the other two).

I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious. I only had cheddar cheese and parmesan and so that is what I used. I also cooked 1/2 cup of brown rice and stirred that in. My grandson, daughter and I, all loved in. It is a keeper. Thanks for the recipe.
