Creamy Parmesan Broccoli & Chicken Casserole Recipe Is Chef Approved by Chef Gigi
I love this chicken casserole recipe because it’s fast, cheap and easy. My family loves this creamy Parmesan broccoli chicken dinner because it’s delicious!
All the ingredients are put into a casserole, covered and baked. You won't be needing a lot of mixing bowls and spoons for this chicken and rice dish. The casserole is made with flavorful ingredients: boneless chicken breast, onion, garlic, mushrooms, rice, broccoli, chicken broth, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, ground sage, Worcestershire sauce and cayenne pepper for a little (optional) heat. This casserole reminds me a little of risotto! And you can't go wrong with risotto.
