It seems like most budget-friendly recipes and meals involve ground beef, don’t they? I love when chicken recipes play by the penny-pinching rules. This casserole is also a quick and easy recipe, so basically there’s nothing you won’t love about this Chicken Broccoli Casserole!
4 chicken breasts
2 pkg. frozen broccoli
1 cup grated swiss cheese
1 stick margarine
5 Tbsp. flour
1-1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup bread crumbs
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Cook chicken thoroughly and discard all bones (be sure to get them all!). Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and place in a baking dish. Cook broccoli in salted water and drain well. Place broccoli on top of chicken.
Melt margarine in saucepan over medium heat. Blend in flour. Add cheese and broth and cook until thickened. Add whipping cream, stir until smooth.
Pour the creamy mixture over the chicken and broccoli. Cover with bread crumbs and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
