Chicken Broccoli Bake

Since I've given my site a facelift (still some things in the works!) I've gone through some of my old favorite recipes and given them a facelift as well.  I'm sure it's a big no no in the food blog world, but some things just have to be done!

This bake a.k.a casserole is perfect for any weeknight meal when you just need something easy to throw together and satisfy your family's hunger.  It's also something you can make ahead, freeze and pop in the oven for those nights you are running behind.

I like to serve mine over rice (it's really good over brown rice).  Pair it with a classic salad or some fruit and dinner is served!

So, when it comes to something that has chicken and broccoli in it then covered in cheese and buttered crackers, can you really go wrong?

  2. Did you happen to change the recipe?? I didn't remember it call for 2 (14 oz) cans but rather the regular size. I also thought it was 6 or 8 oz of sour cream? Did those wet ingredients get changed?? This is our favorite and I never printed the original I have it just save on pinterest which always links back to your blog. Just wanna make sure it taste the same as always as it is a go to for us!

  3. We love this casserole! When you freeze this, do you freeze it with the topping or wait and add that before baking it? Also, do you put it in the oven straight from the freezer or pull it out the night before to thaw? I'm 37 weeks pregnant and would like to add this to my freezer cooking!
