Our Family’s Favorite Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

My kids love broccoli!  I’m glad because that means I get to make them this delicious casserole just like my mom made for my family growing up.  It’s easy to make and the cheesy, creamy flavor just can’t be beat.2013-07-01 010

It makes it seem simpler to make when I think of it in three parts:

  1. Cook 2 10 oz. packages of frozen broccoli until crisp-tender (or the equivalent of fresh — my preference).
  2. Cook three boneless chicken breasts and, depending on their thickness, slice them into thin tenders.
  3. Make the sauce.
  • Melt 1/4 cup butter in medium sauce pan.
  • Stir in 1/4 cup flour until smooth and thick.
  • Add 2 cups chicken broth, stirring constantly until thickened.
  • Stir in 1/2 c.  light cream, 1 T minced, dried onion, 1/2 – 3/4 tsp salt, and a dash of pepper.

Place the cooked broccoli in a 9×13 baking dish.  Pour 1/2 of the sauce over it.  Top with chicken.  To remaining sauce add shredded Parmesan cheese (to taste) and pour over chicken.  Sprinkle additional Parmesan cheese over the top.

Bake at 350* for 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.  When hot, broil until sauce is golden brown.  Enjoy!

This makes a wonderful freezer meal, as well.  I put one in my freezer so we could enjoy good home cooking in our motor home during our long road trip this summer.
