Chicken And Broccoli Casserole Makes The Perfect Weekend Supper

Standing on your feet in the kitchen for hours on your day off is not going to happen anymore. You can get a delicious dinner on the table fast with chicken and broccoli casserole.

I work… a lot. Usually, during a normal week, I can put in 50 hours by Thursday. If I’m lucky I will get Friday off, but that doesn’t happen very often. So when the weekend comes around, the last thing I want to do is work more. I don’t mind cooking, but I don’t like spending hours doing it. I try not to order out too much because that can get expensive. When I found this recipe for a chicken and broccoli casserole that claimed to be easy, I thought I would give it a shot.

There are so many recipes that I have found that say they are easy, but when you get into it, it’s nearly impossible to get right. That wasn’t the case with this dish. It really was as simple as what they claimed, and it smelled amazing coming from the oven.

The rest of the family isn’t usually really big on casseroles, but they gobbled this little beauty right up!
