Easy Meals For Busy Families - Chicken & Broccoli Casserole

Updated on November 16, 2014
Once again the opportunity to take a photo of my own personal, finished product has eluded me. I think I live with a pack of animals. I will try to get a picture the next time I make this casserole.

I love when I dig through old boxes at my parents or relatives houses and find recipes. I love it even more when those recipes are quick, easy, and taste great. I found this recipe while digging through one of my dad's old metal containers he'd gotten while in the military. I expected to find a hodge podge of items he'd thrown in there some years back, not thinking too much about them, but not wanting to throw them out either. To my surprise there was an abundance of recipes all tucked away nicely. I figured since he cooked a lot for his unit, this has got to be an easy recipe and it should make a lot of food. It is and it does. I've made this recipe probably a half a dozen times and it's always a hit. I find even the most picky of eaters will gladly devour this casserole without a complaint about the green stuff (broccoli). There are a few shortcut suggestions along the way as well.

2 C Cooked, Chopped Chicken (One of those pre-cooked chickens from the grocer works very well or any type of leftover chicken you may have in your fridge. And, yes, if you prefer to use Turkey, go ahead and use that)
5 C Cooked Broccoli Cuts
2 Cans of Cream of Chicken
1 1/2 C Mayonnaise
1 1/2 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese (If your family loves cheese, you can definitely add more. I use 2 cups)

Pre-heat oven to 350F degrees.
I usually have some type of leftover chicken in my fridge. If I don't, I will gladly go to the grocer and purchase one of those pre-cooked chickens to save on cooking time. I usually chop my chicken into small pieces, like if you were chopping it up for a young child, but not so small that they could blow away if you sneeze. Cooking the broccoli could take a little bit of time if you're doing it on the stove, but my time-saving solution is to purchase one of those brands that have microwaveable bags. I don't want to name a specific brand as I am not affiliated or being endorsed by any of them, but there are at least 2 well-known companies that have "cook-in-bag" types of vegetables. Read the directions on the bag, but take off one minute of cooking time. You do not want to overcook the broccoli as it will turn to mush by the time your casserole is completed. While your broccoli cooks, mix the 2 cans of Cream of Chicken and Mayonnaise together in a large bowl. Once all of your ingredients are cooked/mixed, spread broccoli into bottom of 8x10 baking dish. Spread chopped chicken on top of broccoli, followed by spreading the Cream of Chicken and Mayonnaise mixture evenly over the top of both layers. Once finished, sprinkle Cheddar Cheese evenly over the top. Cook for 30 minutes or until cheese is completely melted. Enjoy.
