Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Casserole

I chose to make a copycat version of the Cracker Barrel chicken and broccoli casserole. Once very recently, I was going to order some for takeout and found it had disappeared.

Disappointed, but still wanting a comforting casserole with the crunchy topping, I set out to make it myself.

I served this casserole over rice as it seemed appropriate. With a salad on the side and some dinner rolls, this made a nice rounded out meal.

  1. My husband will love this! I’ll eat it without the rice to watch my carbs. It sounds wonderful either way.

    • Grated some cauliflower and saute it just a little bit where its still firm but not gone mushy. As long as having both brox and cauli don’t become too many cruciferous veggies for you at once.
