Chicken Broccoli Casserole


Chicken Broccoli Casserole is easy to prepare with leftover chicken/turkey, rotisserie chicken or even canned chicken. Served over rice this recipe is creamy and cheesy.

I love nights when I can dump and go. This Chicken Broccoli Casserole is one of those easy recipes. The hardest part is cooking and dicing the chicken. To make it even faster use left over chicken or thanksgiving turkey, canned chicken or even rotisserie chicken. The recipe calls for frozen broccoli because it is ready to go, no need to thaw. In fact the extra water makes the sauce a little more soupy which is the way we like it. You are welcome to use fresh broccoli, just make sure to cut the pieces small enough to match the size of the chicken. You will also want to add a little water 1/4 cup at the most to make it a little more soupy.

Chicken Broccoli Casserole is easy to prepare with leftover chicken/turkey, rotisserie chicken or even canned chicken. Served over rice this recipe is creamy and cheesy.Combine all the ingredients and bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes in a preheated oven or until bubbly and lightly browned. We like to serve our Chicken Broccoli Casseroli over rice with a side of Bacon Wrapped Green Bean Bundles and some Amish White Bread. This meal is always a hit with the Little Chefs.

I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!

    My daughter made this Quick Chicken Devan (we call it chicken broccoli casserole) on Sunday. It is one of our favorites dishes. I receive no complaints about leftovers when we have this.

      We actually call it that too- it is more informative to my little ones.
