  • 9×13 casserole dish

  • 4 chicken breasts, about 2 pounds (or 3 cups cooked chicken), cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (if using raw chicken breasts)
  • 1 ½ – 2 pounds broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 ½ cups cheddar cheese, shredded, divided
  • 10 ½ ounces condensed cream of mushroom soup (1 can, or cream of chicken soup)

  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon each garlic powder, onion powder, dry mustard powder, and pepper

Breadcrumb Topping:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a 9×13 baking dish (or a 3-quart casserole dish).

  3. Meanwhile, place broccoli in a large pot of boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes or just until tender-crisp. Drain well and put in the bottom of the baking dish.
  4. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup cheddar cheese, soup, sour cream, milk, and seasonings. Stir in chicken and spread on top of broccoli in the baking or casserole dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  5. In a small bowl, mix breadcrumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle over the cheese.
  6. Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until the breadcrumbs are lightly browned and the mixture is bubbly and hot.
