This was a hit! 🙂 We ate this on my “carb day” so I wasn’t cheating. 😉 Qade liked it so much that he said, “We should have this for lunch!” Since he often takes issue with the lunch options that I give him, ha ha!! Ella, loved the stuffing part of it too and signed “more please” over and over till I was concerned that I wouldn’t actually get a bite. 😉
It’s an easy meal, and goes together in no time! Nice for a busy week night or a lazy weekend, either way. 😉 We had some chopped cucumber for a side and some celery with Almond butter after. The boys LOVE celery with almond or peanut butter, just love it! And they’re pretty nuts about cucumbers, carrots, broccoli and any fresh fruit.
So here’s the casserole. Try it sometime, it’s yummy!
Broccoli Chicken Casserole:
1 1/2 c. water
1 pkg (6 oz) Chicken Stuffing mix
2 cups cubed cooked chicken (I cheated and used one 12.whatever oz can of chicken breast)
1 c. frozen broccoli florets, thawed (I didn’t thaw them first, ha)
1 can condensed broccoli cheese soup, undiluted (I actually had this, surprise surprise, but you could use the “cream of something” soup here instead)
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
In a small saucepan, bring water to boil. Stir in stuffing mix. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand for 5 min.
Meanwhile, layer chicken and broccoli in a greased 11x7x2″ baking dish. Top with soup. Fluff stuffing with a fork; spoon over soup. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 350* for 30-35 min or until heated through. (6 servings)
