Broccoli Cheese Chicken Bake

by Kristeena

I am always on the hunt for a easy, chicken dinner that is packed with flavor. Chicken breasts are my go to but I find that simply marinading and cooking them in the oven gets very, very boring after a while. I love a good casserole because it not only gives you a hearty dinner but there are always leftovers for the next day. When I was younger my mom would make a dish very similar to this and I LOVED it! This is a simpler version of hers but it came out just as good as the one I remember. This recipe I found didn’t call for bread crumbs but that was something my mom’s had that I just couldn’t leave out.

This recipe is great for kids because who hasn’t tried to disguise broccoli with cheese? I am pretty sure that is the only way I would eat broccoli when I was a kid. Easy to make for the parents, good to eat for the kids…That is a win win!

Campbell’s Dinner Sauces come in varieties for Slow Cooker, Oven and Grill and all sorts of flavors, making it easy to find a quick, weeknight dinner to make.  You can find more delicious Campbell recipes here.

You can also find some other delicious chicken bake recipes at The Pinning Mama. I think the next one I will try is the Fajita Chicken Bake. YUM!

Verdict: This is delicious! My husband is a tough critic when I try new recipes and he went back for seconds so that is a success in my book. I chose to eat just the casserole on it’s own but you can put it on top of some rice, pasta, or spinach for a lighter option. Enjoy!!

Broccoli Cheese Chicken Bake

Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time:

Ingredients

  • 3-4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 1 Campbell’s Oven Sauce: Cheesy Broccoli Chicken
  • 4 cups Frozen Broccoli Florets
  • 6 oz Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 6 tbsps plain breadcrumbs
  • 3 tbsps butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Lay the chicken breasts flat on the bottom of a baking dish.
  2. Cover the chicken breasts with the frozen broccoli florets.
  3. Spread the package of the Campbell’s Oven Sauce evenly over the top of the broccoli.
  4. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the top of the sauce.
  5. Take the melted butter and add to breadcrumbs, mix together, then add on top of the shredded cheese.
  6. Place on the middle rack in an oven preheated to 400F for 45-60 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Depending on your oven, altitude and thickness of the chicken breasts this could be more or less time.
  7. Check the chicken throughout to make sure that the top is not too brown, if you don’t want it to get any more browned, then place a piece of foil loosely over the top for the remainder of the cooking time.
  8. Serve over rice, pasta, or greens and enjoy!

Notes

*If your store doesn't have the Campbell's sauce you can use 2 cans of Campbell's Condensed Broccoli Cheese Soup as a substitute. *I wait to add the cheese & breadcrumbs until halfway through cooking. This way you don't risk burning them. *After cooking the casserole for 40 minutes I took it out, cut the chicken into chunks, mixed the chicken back into dish, added a bit more cheese & breadcrumbs (because why not) and then cooked for another 10 minutes. I prefer smaller pieces of chicken so this step is 100% a personal preference.
