Skinny Chicken Broccoli Casserole
Once you mix together all the ingredients and load them into your casserole dish, your tastebuds are going to want to eat! Just a few minutes of baking and it’ll be ready before you know it. I like to add some more parmesan cheese and shredded cheddar cheese on top (or at least sprinkle with remaining cheeses!) for some more crazy good flavor!
The boys really love the taste of this casserole – and I like that I can eat a few bites of it without feeling guilty, too! While I don’t know if this is weight watcher approved, it is a healthier version that uses some fat free ingredients!
Can you use fresh broccoli for this dish?
You can. I like to use frozen broccoli florets because I can buy in bulk and not worry about wilting, but fresh broccoli could absolutely work. There might be a bit more crunch when you use fresh, but it should still be delicious
If you’re using fresh broccoli, you may want to consider blanching it first to make it more tender. DOn’t worry! Learning how to blanch broccoli is easy and painless! Once blanched, the fresh broccoli will work beautifully in this dish, providing a flavorful and slightly crunchy texture. Either way, enjoy your delicious dish!

How do you store leftover casseroles?
After a satisfying dinner, it’s common to have some leftovers. But what’s the best way to store that delicious casserole you made?
First, make sure the casserole has cooled down to room temperature (this can take up to an hour). Then, cover it tightly with plastic wrap or aluminum foil.
Alternatively, you can store it in airtight glass containers.
Always place the leftovers in the fridge within two hours of cooking.
If you’re planning to freeze the casserole, make sure to use a freezer-safe container. Bear in mind that some casseroles may lose their texture or taste once defrosted, especially those containing dairy.
Lastly, make sure to consume the leftovers within three to four days of cooking.
By properly storing and handling your leftovers, you can enjoy a tasty meal once again without worrying about food safety.
What side dishes pair well with healthy casseroles?
Healthy casseroles are a fantastic way to pack in a variety of nutrients in a single dish. To complement the flavors and add a refreshing taste, side dishes play an essential role.
Start with simple, leafy green salads with vinaigrette dressing or a mix of fresh seasonal vegetables steamed or roasted with garlic for a light and wholesome side.
Rice and quinoa salads with herbs, cucumbers, and tomatoes make for a colorful and satisfying pairing.
Sautéed mushrooms and sweet potato wedges also complement the flavors of the casserole perfectly.
By experimenting with different side dishes, one is sure to find the perfect match to elevate the taste of the healthy casserole.
