Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Bake

Today I am sharing another FAMILY FAVORITE recipe in our home. I am one lucky mama, because my MIL included this recipe in the recipe book she made for me, when Kevin and I got married. Thanks Innie, the recipe book is used often and loved just as much. 


This is a go to recipe if I have fresh broccoli on hand, and I don’t want to make Beef and Broccoli, I make this recipe instead…. 

“CREAMY CHICKEN AND BROCCOLI BAKE”

I AM TELLING YOU THE SMALL DASH OF CAYENNE PEPPER YOU DUST ON THE TOP before baking… MAKES IT! 
Ingredients & Directions
5-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts-cooked and cut up.
(i season my chicken with a little salt and pepper.)
1 1/2 heads of broccoli, rinsed, cooked, and chopped.
(i place my broccoli in a bowl with a tbsp. of water, and i cover it with press and seal wrap and cook it in the microwave for 3 mins. 25 sec.)

Drain your broccoli and place it in a sprayed 9×13 baking dish, place your cooked chicken on top.
THE WHITE SAUCE
4 tbsp of butter
4 Tbsp. of flour
1/2 tsp. pepper
slat and pepper 
just a few shakes!
2. cups of milk
3/4 to 1 c. of dry Parmesan cheese
MIX all of this in a pot until thickens. Pour over your broccoli and chicken! 
remember just a lite dust of cayenne pepper over the top, trust me this makes the dish!
BAKE 325 for 20 minutes!

he has a mouth full of love in his mouth full of love! winks.
NOTICE the baking dish IS TOTALLY WIPED OUT! YEP’ its that good!

  1. Looks Delicious! Recipe calls for parmesan cheese, but your discription is a creamy cheddary white sauce. Does that mean you use cheddar instead of parmesan?

  2. I know my family would love this, because they love broccoli! Can’t wait to make it.

  3. This looks delicious! I’m wondering, could you make it with frozen broccoli and would you just thaw it first or would you cook it first? Have you tried it with frozen?

  4. Yum! Thanks so much for sharing this. I can’t wait to try it!
