Chicken Broccoli Casserole

Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling you-hoo... Inside the chicken is cooking and my husband is shouting woo-hoo! 

Ok, that was a lame attempt at a joke on the weather right now. It's not the worst that I've seen but it's record breaking snow fall (already a foot in Nov?!) and temperature lows (-10?!) right now so what better than a yummy comfort food casserole to warm up the evening. Brrrr! Enjoy!

  • 1 1/2 cup cooked chicken (you can boil and shred chicken breasts or buy chunk chicken in a can)
  • 1 lb fresh chopped broccoli
  • 1 1/2 cups of your favorite pasta (I used smaller shells)
  • 1 can Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese 
  • 1 package stuffing mix
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. If using chicken breasts, boil chicken until tender and shred or cut into bite size pieces. If using chunk canned chicken, just make sure it's chopped up nicely. 
  3. Steam broccoli until crisp but tender. 
  4. Boil pasta until firm.
  5. In a small bowl mix together the soup and milk. Set aside. 
  6. Layer the chicken, broccoli, soup mixture, and cheese in baking dish. 
  7. Prepare stuffing mix according to package and sprinkle over the top.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the topping is browned.
Look you can see the steam!
 We only had a Columbia Crest Merlot in the house tonight but that'll warm us up just fine with this dish! I'd probably prefer a Chardonnay but I'm not venturing out in this snow. Enjoy!!!

  1. I am always looking for a new casserole, and this looks really yummy!

  2. Just made this tonight and it really hit the spot! Thanks for sharing! I have a feeling this will become a regular in our homes. :-)
