Healthy Meals Monday: Creamy Chicken Broccoli Casserole Recipe

My husband loves a good casserole.  Whenever I ask what he wants for dinner, he always rattles off names of casseroles his mom would make growing up.  We threw this one into the rotation and he loved it!  Nothing beats being able to throw a casserole together in the morning then pop it in the oven before dinner.
This recipe was so easy and my whole family enjoyed it!  It is creamy enough that you could serve it over pasta!

    • We ususally just boil the chicken breast and then dice it up into small bite sized pieces. When we are really cramped for time we will buy a rotisserie chicken. You could even grill it outside or on some type of indoor grilling appliance..like a George Foreman Grill. Whatever works. Boiling is usually the easiest.
