This is a super easy chicken casserole made with a thickened sauce, cooked chicken, and broccoli spears.

The casserole is baked with a layer of croutons topped with chicken, broccoli, and sauce. Add a salad and freshly baked buttermilk biscuits to make a satisfying family meal.

  • 1 package (10 oz) frozen broccoli spears, cooked and drained
  • 8 large slices cooked chicken

Tasteless and Dry, Member StacyBarton

This casserole had absolutely no flavor. I prepared it once exactly as recipe instructs . . . no taste! Also, the recipe did not state whether or not to cover when baking, so I did not cover it and the chicken was dry and crunchy. I didn't think there was enough sauce. I prepared it a second time, making 1-1/2 times the amount of sauce it called for, plus I added salt, garlic granules and 1/2 cup white wine to the sauce, and I covered with foil while baking . . . still pretty tasteless, but not dry. I would not make this casserole again!
