5-Ingredient Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Casserole Recipe Makes Adulting Easy

Sick of trying to figure out what to cook every night for dinner after work? Me, too. In fact, this may be my least favorite part of adulting. But this five-ingredient cheesy chicken broccoli casserole recipe makes adulting easy!

My favorite meals are the easiest, quickest ones, especially those that everyone in my family will happily eat. Casseroles are a great solution, and this easy broccoli chicken casserole recipe is a perfect example. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 4 to 6


  • 1 package (6 ounces) chicken stuffing mix
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cubed (I used rotisserie chicken and saved the leftovers)
  • 1 cup broccoli florets, thawed if frozen
  • 1 can (10 ounces) condensed broccoli cheese soup, not diluted
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • chicken broth (only if you plan to freeze it)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Prepare stuffing mix according to package directions, using only 1 1/2 cups water.
  2. In a large bowl, combine chicken, broccoli and soup. Add salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer the mixture to a greased 11x7-inch casserole dish. Top with stuffing and sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Bake, covered, in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes.

Notes: Easy freeze option: Once casserole is cooled, transfer individual portions to freezer containers. Freeze completely. Plan ahead one day to use: Partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Transfer to a microwave-safe dish. Microwave, covered, on high until a thermometer inserted in center reads 165 degrees F. Stir occasionally and add a little chicken broth, if necessary.
