Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Casserole

Sharing is caring!

You can never go wrong with cheese, chicken, and broccoli in my house!  From Chicken Broccoli Braid to any number of casseroles.  If you change just one tiny bit of the recipe it makes an entirely new dish!  A little Parmesan and some cream of mushroom change the flavor and consistency.  All of my kids love it – in fact I made this Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Casserole just the other night to get pictures and Tank (7) ate 3 bowls full!  For someone that can still fit in 2T shorts, that is saying something!

Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Casserole Recipe

For most of us, this is an easy fall back dish because we all typically have cheese, chicken, and broccoli on hand.

Yummy Chicken and Broccoli Recipe

Served it with 5-cheese garlic bread… We thought it was really good the first time and added it to our stack of tried and true recipes.  I have had this recipe for so many years that I don’t remember where I first got inspiration.  Of course, like any recipe I have ever seen anywhere, things were changed over the years to fit our family’s taste-buds.  Enjoy!

I love a chicken broccoli braid and never thought to turn it into a casserole with pasta. What a great idea. This looks awesome.
