Baked Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Casserole Ingredients

  • Chicken Breasts – boneless, skinless
  • Ricos Aged Cheddar Cheese Sauce
  • Cream of Chicken soup
  • Frozen Broccoli Florets
  • Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • Garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions to Make Baked Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Casserole

Step One: Preheat Oven

Begin by preheating the oven to 400° F.

Step Two: Place Chicken in Baking Dish & Season

Place the chicken breasts flat on the bottom of a baking dish. I prefer to use a 2qt pyrex because it fits 3 chicken breasts perfectly.

Lightly season both sides of the chicken breasts with garlic, salt and pepper.

Step Three: Add Broccoli

Next, place the frozen broccoli florets on top of the chicken breasts.

Step Four: Combine Soup and Cheese

Then, in a medium bowl, combine the cream of chicken soup with Ricos Aged Cheddar Cheese Sauce, mixing well.

Step Five: Add to Chicken

Now spread the cheese sauce evenly over the top of the broccoli, then top with a sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese.

Step Six: Bake

Place on the lower, middle rack in the oven for 45-60 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts this could take more or less time.

Bake for 45 to 60 minutes

Keep an eye on it while it bakes, and if it gets to where you don’t want it to brown anymore, loosely cover with a piece of foil for the remainder of the cook time.

Step Seven: Serve

Once finished, serve over rice or pasta, and enjoy!
