Broccoli Chicken Casserole is an easy, quick dish and a great way to serve broccoli and chicken. This recipe can be used for leftover chicken, turkey or even ham. Just add bread and a salad for a meal. My family is not big on broccoli but they love this recipe and I think it is one you will make over and over again. The Ritz crackers and cheese are what makes this dish in my opinion. Who doesn’t love crackers and cheese together. You can change it up by using the different meats and cheeses and no one will know it is the same dish.
1 (12 ounce) package frozen broccoli cuts
3 to 4 cups chicken, turkey or ham (cooked and chopped)
2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon curry powder, Optional
Ritz cracker crumbs, enough to cover top of casserole dish (could use bread crumbs, too)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or whatever kind of cheese you like and could use more than 1 cup)
Spread the broccoli in the bottom of a 3 quart baking dish and sprinkle meat on top. Combine the cream of chicken soup, lemon juice, mayonnaise, black pepper, salt, curry powder and mix together with a wire whisk. Cover the broccoli and meat with the soup mixture. Crumble the Ritz crackers on top and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes. Makes 8 to 10 servings. Enjoy!
