Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

This comforting chicken casserole recipe comes from my mom. It utilizes some shortcuts, like a rotisserie chicken and frozen broccoli spears.  It is ultra comforting and a delicious meal I loved growing up and my kiddos love now. Enjoy!

Chicken and Broccoli Casserole
Makes 6-8 servings


  • 2 boxes frozen broccoli spears
  • 1 rotisserie chicken, chicken pieces removed and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 2 (10.5 oz. each) cans cream of chicken soup (I have used a mixture of cream of chicken soup, cream of chicken and mushroom soup, and cream of celery. All were delicious.)
  • 1 can mayo (use empty cream of chicken soup can)
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 cups plain dried breadcrumbs


  1. Spray a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Thaw and drain broccoli spears in a colander. Place in bottom of baking dish. Alternatively you can use a bag of steamer vegetables. Prepare as directed on the bag and pour into the bottom of the baking dish.
  3. Tear apart roaster chicken into bite sized chunks. Add chicken pieces on top of broccoli.
  4. Mix cream of chicken soup with mayo and paprika. Spread on chicken. Top with cheese.
  5. Melt butter in skillet and add dried breadcrumbs. Mix. Toast lightly in pan until butter is melted and incorporated.Add breadcrumb mixture to top of cheese.
  6. Bake at 350-f degrees for 30 minutes.

  4. Hey! My uncle makes this very same recipe, but instead of using breadcrumbs, he uses Crushed Ritz Crackers. VERY VERY good alternative!!

  5. That looks so creamy and comforting! I love that you use the can to measure the mayo! Have a great weekend!
