Cheesy Chicken & Broccoli Casserole: A Classic Recipe Kids Will Love!

Want kids to eat their broccoli? Blanket it under melted cheese and a creamy white sauce and they're sure to gobble it up! This recipe is similar to Chicken Divan, minus the almonds. 

You'll need:

  • 2 cups broccoli florets, cooked until almost tender
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 - 3 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese

Here's how to make it:

  1. Arrange the broccoli in the bottom of a rectangular casserole dish.
  2. For the sauce, melt the butter in a pan. Add the flour and cook 1 minute. Add the milk and lemon. Cook, stirring, until bubbly. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Pour half of the sauce over the broccoli. Sprinkle with half of the Cheddar and Parmesan. 
  4. Spread the chicken over the cheese. Top with the Swiss cheese slices. 
  5. Pour remaining sauce over the top and sprinkle with the remaining Cheddar and Parmesan.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 20-25 minutes, or until heated through.
