Excellent meal!! I will be making this alot from now on, we all enjoyed this casserole very much!! It was so easy to prepare and only took a few minutes which was even better. I cooked my chicken breasts in the microwave on each side for 5 minutes, then cooked my broccli in the microwave too. Threw everything in a casserole dish and dinner was done shortly after. Great taste, great meal, thanks!!
I made this up a few nights ago, and it was a big hit. I started off with fresh s/b breasts; I just cubed them up and browned them in some olive oil and garlic, then put them in the bottom of my casserole dish. While I was cooking the chicken, I did the broccoli in the microwave. I also used cream of mushroom soup (the only kind I had on hand), and was quite generous with the cheddar cheese covering. The recipe doesn't state whether or not to use fresh or dried breadcrumbs, so I used Italian-seasoned dried, which worked well and tasted great. Dinner was delicious! This was easy to prepare, even though I didn't have cooked chicken already on hand, and I will definitely make it again. I also think this would be a wonderful dish if made with leftover cooked turkey. Thanks for sharing this, Christina.
This is a great base recipe. I double everything, using 1 cr. of mushroom and 1 cr. of chicken soup. If you have evaporated milk to use it really raises the flavor. Here are some simple instructions to pep up the flavor. Melt 2 T butter in a covered dish with 2-3 crushed cloves of garlic or diced onion, in the microwave. Once melted, sprinkle with italian seasoning and add fresh broccoli. Cook for 4 minutes in the microwave until tender. Stir broccoli to distribute the butter and spices. Spread in the bottom of a 9x13 pan, add chicken. Assemble as usual. In same microwave dish (without cleaning) melt 1 T butter. Add breadcrumbs and sprinkle over prepared dish.
