Broccoli Chicken Swiss Cheese Casserole
Broccoli chicken casserole recipes are very popular. Just ‘Google it’ and you will see what I mean! This broccoli chicken casserole is a family favorite, an easy to make dish that can be quickly put together with about 20 minutes prep time and baked in about 45 minutes. So in just one hour you can feed 4-6 really hungry people or have wonderful leftovers for lunches all week!
I find it’s a quick and easy dish to put together on a weekend and then freeze in single portions. Just nuke and serve, add a salad and fresh bread and you’ve got a delicious and economical meal.
Chicken is always on sale somewhere, so I typically have some chicken breasts in the freezer. Canned ‘cream of’ soups are a staple in my pantry, ready to step up and help to pull a quick and easy meal together.
Swiss cheese gives the dish a light nutty flavor, it really pulls the entire dish together.
I cut the cheese into small cubes so that it will be evenly mixed with the chicken and broccoli making this Broccoli, Chicken Swiss Cheese Casserole the cheesiest!
Finding different and flavorful ways to cook chicken can be a challenge, especially if you have some picky eaters. I was lucky in that my daughter really loved broccoli, so it was finding different ways to include broccoli in our meals!
Brown the chicken breasts until golden on both sides in a cast iron skillet. Have you used a cast iron skillet yet? If not, I really recommend getting one. They require a different type of cleaning and curing – but once you get the idea, a cast iron skillet will be in your pantry forever, it will never wear out!
Mix up the cream of broccoli soup, the sour cream and melted butter – whisking until well blended.
Then mix in the Swiss cheese.
Place the browned chicken in your casserole dish. Top with chopped broccoli – but keep a half cup of broccoli aside.
Pour the sour cream/cheese mixture over all, and then top with some sprigs of broccoli – this is just for a visual – the green broccoli really looks delicious when its sitting up on top of the casserole.
And voila – a Broccoli Chicken Swiss Cheese Casserole, worthy of a glass of white wine or two!
