Let's have a quick heart-to-heart. How often do you walk into your kitchen, have zero planned for dinner, throw your hands up in disgust, and just order a pizza?
Guilty as charged. Very guilty as charged.
But not this time. No ma'am. I had things in my fridge and pantry that needed to be used and a quickly-dwindling back account that didn't.
So what did I come up with? Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Casserole.
The name needs some work, but the dish is delish!
Ingredients (all were in my fridge/pantry, and I bet they're in yours too!)
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken
2 cans condensed broccoli and cheese soup
1 package frozen broccoli cuts, cooked and drained
1 12 ounce container sour cream
3 tbsp butter
1 pack butter crackers (about 30 crackers)
What You'll Do
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Chop the chicken into bite-sized pieces and cook in a skillet until done, about 5 minutes (depending on the size of your chicken).
In a large bowl, combine condensed soup, broccoli (that has been cooked and drained -- I love Steamfresh for this!), and sour cream. Add chicken and mix well.
Spray a casserole dish (I used a 2-quart pan) lightly with cooking spray. Pour chicken mixture into pan and spread out evenly.
In a microwave-safe bowl, melt butter. Put butter crackers into a zip lock bag and crush. Mix butter and crackers and spoon out on top of the casserole.
Bake in the oven 35 to 40 minutes or until hot and bubbly. I served this with a side of green beans (double the veggies) and mini roasted potatoes.
It makes great leftovers too!
