Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

There are so many versions of this recipe but this one is simple to make and takes less than 15 minutes hands on time. You can also make the recipe your own by adding or changing a few ingredients.

Serves 4-6


2 cups cooked chicken
4 oz. sour cream
1 cup broccoli, roughly chopped
1 can condensed chicken or celery soup
2 cups cooked egg noodles
2 cups crackers, crushed
2 tablespoons butter, melted


In a medium bowl, mix together sour cream, soup and chicken. Toss in noodles. Pour into a 9 x 9 baking dish.

Mix together crackers and butter. Top casserole evenly with cracker mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly. Let sit about 15 minutes before serving.

Cooking Wiser
To decrease calories, use fat free soup and light sour cream
To add more flavor, add 1/2 teaspoon of your favorite fresh herb(s). I
like rosemary and thyme.
Add 2/3 cup grated cheddar cheese when you add the noodles.
Use sliced almonds to replace the crackers- Gluten free.
If you like the broccoli more tender, add it to the cooking pasta the last 3 or 4 minutes before chopping. Allow to cool for chopping.
