Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups uncooked broccoli
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 can Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 3 Tbs butter melted
  • ¼ cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Dice the chicken. Combine the soup and milk in a medium bowl, and the breadcrumbs and butter in a small bowl.
  • COOK THE CHICKEN
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Add the chicken and broccoli to an 8×8 baking dish, and pour the soup/milk mixture over the top.
  • Sprinkle with the cheddar cheese and pour over the breadcrumbs/butter mixture.
  • Bake at 450 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

Notes

SUBSTITUTIONS:
You can use any kind of condensed soup – I recommend Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Celery or just plain Cheddar Soup. You can make your own Cream of Chicken Soup too!
SHORTCUTS:
Want to take a shortcut or 2? Use precooked rotisserie chicken or buy fully cooked chicken from the grocery store. Buy broccoli that is already cut into florets, or use frozen broccoli.
