Chicken And Broccoli Casserole Makes The Perfect Weekend Supper

The thing I love most about casseroles like this chicken and broccoli version is the fact that they are so versatile. I have made it a few times since that first night and it’s always been a success. I have done it with both rice and pasta and it tastes pretty great either way. One time I wanted to make it and I didn’t have any broccoli so I used cauliflower instead and it was just as good. You can load it up with cheese if you want, or leave it off if you don’t have any. I think everything tastes a whole lot better with cheese, but that’s just me. The leftovers are just as good if not better the second day… if you’re luck to have any!
