Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Casserole - a simple, quick and delicious dinner idea filled with chicken, broccoli and cheese and topped with buttered bread crumbs!

Are there any recipes that you can think of that you hated as a child, but love now?? Today’s recipe happens to be one of those… My mom has been making this Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Casserole for as long as I can remember. It was one of those dinner recipes I cringed about because it was full of BROCCOLI!! Yes, I’d eat the chicken and everything else, but would try to spread the remaining broccoli pieces all over my plate to make it look like I had eaten more than I had. And don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about because I’m sure you did the same thing as a child with at least ONE of the recipes your mom made. 😉

Now, I can’t get enough of this recipe!! Fortunately, I grew up and love broccoli. I’m still trying to convince my kids they love it too, but in the meantime they can do what I did and just eat around the big, green chunks. 😉 At least the hubby and I and a few of the kids love this recipe, which means I try to add it to the menu plan as much as possible. 😀

    What size package of broccoli does this require?

    I’m not a fan of mayo so I was wondering if I can substitute sour cream?

      I have not personally tried, but I am sure you could. I don’t know how much it would change, so I’d love to know what you think, if you do 🙂
